NA Staphylinidae Subfamilies Key
"Lucid Key to Staphylinidae Subfamilies" Project

Atlas of rove beetles (Staphylinidae) of Russia and adjacent countries
[cite:385593]
never mind spelling/grammar, all in all it's a helpful source.

Keys to Subfamilies and Genera of the Staphylinidae of America North of Mexico (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) - Dr. E.F. Legner
Does not appear to be illustrated, but this clickable online key seems to be pretty comprehensive? Welcome comments by our beetle experts as to the utility of this key.

A revision of the species of Cafius from the west coast of North America with notes on the east coast species
This is a great resource for identifying North American Cafius to species. Written in 1980 by H. E. Orth and Ian Moore.

The keys are straightforward, the descriptions well-written and detailed, and there are figures at the end of the article...including large, good-quality, dorsal-view line drawings for each of the 13 species covered, and drawings of antennae for 5 species and aedeagi for all 13. While the emphasis is on the 10 species known (in 1980) from the west coast, it also includes a key to the five east coast species, with briefer discussions of them.
