Two new polytomous keys were added; a key to the species of the genus Rhynchonema
based on the publications of Bezerra et al. (2014) and Datta et al. (2015), and a key to identify the family Monhysteridae
at genus level according to Fonseca and Decraemer (2008).
Plans for the near future are to update earlier erected keys, upload more recently constructed keys, and provide the diagnostic characters in the new keys with schematic drawings.
