Coolia occasionally publishes (provisional) determination keys. These may cover a whole genus, or sometimes even a family or tribe. The advantage is that such a key always covers Dutch material and is generally complete for all species known from The Netherlands (and sometimes Belgium). Such a key is then more complete than any book!
