An 'Identification Manual' on the Amazonian entomofauna for beginners and non-specialists has been demanded for many years. Most taxonomic literature on Neotropical Arachnida and Myriapoda is strictly descriptive (e.g. BONALDO & BRESCOVIT 1994, HOFFMAN 1980, MAHNERT 1979, SCHELLER 1994), keys in translated and accepted textbooks are restricted to the higher taxa (e.g. BORROR & DE LONG 1969) and first introductions to Amazonian arthropods refer to specific sampling sites and are mainly devoted to insects (e.g. PENNY & ARIAS 1982). On the other hand, our taxonomical knowledge on Amazonian Arthropoda was much improved due to investigations for the last two decades, cooperatively between INPA and the Tropical Ecology Working Group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Limnology in Ploen/Germany (cf. ADIS & SCHUBART 1984).
