key
An identification key, also known as a dichotomous key, is a method of deducing the name of a species. It usually works by offering two (in a truely dichotomous key, sometimes more) alternatives at each juncture, and the choice of one of those alternatives determines the next step. A very common error in using a dichotomous key is the assumption that the correct identification is even included in that key. It is possible that a specimen cannot be identified with a particular key, yet the key will lead the user to an end that appears to be "answer". For this reason, comparing the specimen with a more detailed description is vitally important: a dichotomous key alone cannot be used to identify specimens, unless the specimens are known in advance to be included within the key. See http://en.wikiped...se_of_Keys for further comments. See also the Weblinks Section Online keys".

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
