Interactive identification (optimized version)

Keys using the Xper3 software
Identification of a species is achieved in several steps by elimination:
Select a first descriptor (eg. Hind femur) in no particular order of selection.
1) Select a state (long, narrow, keeled ...).
2) Click on the thumbnails to view full size.
3) Validate.
4) Repeat the process until obtaining the name of the species selected according to your criteria. The species that do not meet the selection criteria are gradually eliminated at each stage of the process.

A must read to understand how Xper3 works:
Jouveau et al., 2018. Zookeys 758: 55-73
Kerner et al., 2021>

Identification keys have been tested with :
macOS 10.13 with Firefox 60, Safari 11, Chrome 65, Opera 52
Mac OSX 10.6.8 with Firefox 48, Safari 5.1.10., Opera 12.16
Windows 10 with Edge 11 et Chrome 41.0.

The first connection to Xper3 is now much faster.
