Key for the identification of British Ciidae

There are 22 species from 7 genera listed in the latest British checklist.  15 of these belong to genus Cis.  The key below is adapted from the work of Joy (1932) with the key to species of genus Cis translated from the work of Lompe (2012).  These beetles are very small and require a good stereomicroscope to identify.
