Key SearchWelcome to the Lucidcentral Key Search

There are two ways you can search for a key in the Lucid key database. First, you can type in a word or words in the “Search” box to the right of the screen and press Go. This search will display all those keys that have the word(s) you entered in the title of the key. The alternative way is to use one or a number of the search categories below, using the drop down menus. So, for instance, you could search for an internet key (under Media/Deployment), of Higher plants (Taxonomic scope), terrestrial (Habitat) and Australia (Geo Scope).

We recommend that you check whether you have the latest (free) version of Java Runtime Environment and if necessary upgrade to the latest version when running keys based on the Lucid Player applet.

Trichomycetes are a cosmopolitan group of fungi and protists that grow obligately in the guts of insects, crustaceans, and millipedes that live in freshwater, marine, or terrestrial habitats. The taxonomy of these organisms is based primarily on morphology of the vegetative thallus; spore type and dimensions; host; and habitat.

Screening Aid to Palm Pests  --  VISIT

Screening Aid to Pests (SAP) is part of the commodity-based A Resource for Pests and Diseases of Cultivated Palms, developed to support Federal, State, and County plant protection agencies and other organizations involved with surveillance, detection, and monitoring of pests and diseases associated with cultivated palms. Palms are commonly cultivated as ornamentals and have been used as crop plants for centuries, providing important sources of food and a variety of other products. As such, palms are one of the most economically important groups of plants.

SAP, the first of six tools being developed to support the screening and detection of pests and diseases of cultivated palms in the U.S. and Caribbean, is aimed primarily at the novice entomologist. SAP was designed to help users determine which type of arthropod palm pest they have found and features illustrated fact sheets with descriptions of each pest as well as two interactive keys. There is an adult key that helps the user with identifying the order of the pest, and then offers the ability to identify to a lower rank, such as family, genus, or species, as well as a key to select larval species. In the keys themselves, common language terms are used to help support use of the keys by inexperienced individuals. However, in order to maximize their value and validity, some specialized entomological terminology appears in the fact sheets. A glossary with links from the fact sheets, as well as an an illustrated primer to insect anatomy, assist the user in understanding such terms.
