This topic is for announcements of recent publications providing keys to the identification of chironomid taxa.

Please NOTE that some keys are offered in works containing new taxon proposals, e.g. in genus revisions. Citations of such titles are not necessarily repeated in the present board of the Forum, but are listed in the "Taxa" category, "Recently published" board.
