We propose a simple, user-friendly key joined to a pictorial key to the bdelloid genera, in the attempt to make bdelloid identification more accessible to non-bdelloid-specialists. The key is mostly based on illustrations rather than on descriptions, and is accompanied by an introduction of the main features readily observable in active bdelloids.
