This is the third edition of the FBA's key to flatworms, following on from the second produced in 1978 (SP 23) and the original written in 1967. The key has been substantially rewritten and includes:

• a key to live specimens, including a recent addition to the British fauna

• an additional short key to preserved specimens

• notes on identification of cocoons

• information on the general biology of triclads, as well as species-specific biology and distribution

• over 150 references.

This edition is therefore more than just a key: it is a complete key and comprehensive account of the biology and distribution of freshwater triclads in Britain and Ireland.
