Photographic key to the Pseudoscorpions of Canada and the adjacent USA

A brand-new helpful source with a key to 35 taxa (33 genera + some species) representing 9 families. The introduction provides general info on the order and the fauna of the region.

Please keep in mind that the key uses no features that are visible on a general dorsal view, so sorting pseudoscorpions from live photographs even to families is virtually impossible. All the diagnostic characters are microscopic.

Links above are dead
I had to search for a while, but the key can now be found here
