Version 2 of INTKEY is available for Unix (SunOS), and can be used 
across the Internet. For an example, see
    Christiansen, K. A., Bellinger, P. F., and da Gama, M. M. (1990).
    Computer assisted identification of specimens of Pseudosinella
    (Collembola Entomobryidae). Rev. Ecol. Biol. Sol 27, 231-246.
To try this system:
    Username: BUGS
    Password: DELTA

Version 2 of INTKEY has only a command-line interface (though lists of 
commands can be displayed either manually or automatically). We hope 
eventually to port the Windows version of INTKEY (version 4) to other 
GUI's, including Mac and Unix. I don't know whether either version could 
be accessed via WWW.
