Contents

The key and descriptions were generated from a DELTA database (Dallwitz 1980; Dallwitz, Paine, and Zurcher 1993).

Introduction

Interactive key, including interactive information retrieval • Hints on using the interactive key

The interactive key allows free choice of characters, is easy to use, and can lead to correct identifications in spite of occasional errors. It can display all the illustrations, full and partial descriptions, diagnostic descriptions, differences and similarities between taxa, lists of taxa exhibiting or lacking specified attributes, distributions of character states within any set of taxa, and classifications, and .

Species sampled for anatomy

Descriptions

We advise against extracting comparative information from the descriptions. This is much more easily achieved using the DELTA data files or the interactive key. See also Guidelines for using data taken from Web publications.

The bold parts in the descriptions are diagnostic descriptions, generated with the aid of Intkey (Dallwitz, Paine, and Zurcher 1995). They distinguish most taxa in at least two respects from the other taxa.
