Checklist of the Collembola: Genera

Frans Janssens, Department of Biology, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, B-2020, Belgium

Index of currently valid genera: this index of genera provides for a short-cut to locate any currently valid genus name within the Collembola classification system.
Index of online available generic and suprageneric keys.
Note that many keys are still in an experimental state.

Available identification keys

Dichotomous and inter-active identification keys are indicated in the checklist by a key icon ( ) appending the taxon name. Clicking on the key icon will open the dichotomous key.
Keys are provided per rank, such as class, family, subfamily and genus. The keys are associated with the taxa and follow as such the taxonomic hierarchy. Note that not all keys are currently provided.

The following dichotomous suprageneric keys are currently available:
