Keys for the identification of British Cryptophagidae

This is a family with a good representation in the British fauna.  Unfortunately many of the species are very similar to one another.  In addition there does not appear to be any up to date key to the British species so this is an attempt to put that right.  The first file below is a key to genus and contains keys to species of all the genera except for the big two - Atomaria and Cryptophagus.  These are covered in the second two files

If you trial these keys please contact me with comments (mikesinsectkeysATgmail.com).  I want them to be a useful resource for British entomologists.
