Checklist of the Collembola: Key to the genera of Oncopoduridae

This key is still under construction. Note that missing figures will be provided as soon as possible. Currently, the key is in the feasibility study phase to find out how to integrate in the checklist in a modular way a key that has been generated with DELTA.

Key

Note that no distinction between subtaxa and taxa is made in the key.

1(0). Eyes absent; mucro without ciliated chaetae................... 2
      Eyes present; mucro with ciliated chaetae.......... Harlomillsia
 
2(1). Dens with chaetae differentiated as spines or crooks;
        postantennal organ not moruliform.................. Oncopodura
      Dens with only normal smooth pointed chaetae; postantennal organ
        moruliform...................................... Sinoncopodura

Differential diagnoses

Harlomillsia
Eyes present. Mucro with ciliated chaetae.

Oncopodura
Dens with chaetae differentiated as spines or crooks. Eyes absent. Mucro without ciliated chaetae. Postantennal organ not moruliform.

Sinoncopodura
Dens with only normal smooth pointed chaetae. Eyes absent. Mucro without ciliated chaetae. Postantennal organ moruliform.
