Key to Florida species of Heteropsylla  

1. Outer lobe of male paramere with a black tooth in the middle of hind margin; inner lobe modified into a sharp black spine. Female terminalia very short; proctiger strongly angled down; subgenital plate, in profile, truncate................................................................... 2

— Outer lobe of male paramere without teeth in the middle of hind margin (might have a tooth at the top). Inner lobe of the paramere not modified into a sharp black spine. Female terminalia longer; proctiger straighter; subgenital plate, in profile, pointed apically................................ 3

2(1). Inner lobe of male paramere consisting of a black spine that shows easily in lateral view. Females cannot be separated...................................................... H. mimosae Crawford  

— Inner lobe of male paramere consisting of a black spine that is hidden behind the outer lobe in lateral view. Females cannot be separated.............. H. flexuosa Muddiman, Hodkinson and Hollis  

3(1). Outer lobe of male paramere with a black tooth on posterior apical corner, both lobes nearly horizontal and equal in length in posterior view. Female subgenital plate with sinuate dorsal margin........................................................................... H. cubana Crawford  

— Lobes of male paramere unequal in length and not horizontal on the top, outer lobes without teeth (inner lobes might have teeth). Female subgenital plate not sinuate dorsally........................ 4

4(3). Forewing with infuscated membrane, dorsal surface of thorax dark with orange markings (not visible on teneral specimens). Lobes of paramere divided more than half the length of the inner lobes in rear view. Subgenital plate of female bulging ventrally and without a defined central horizontal ridge..................................................................... H. fusca Crawford  

— Forewing with clear membrane; dorsal surface of the thorax dusky or pale. Lobes of paramere divided up to half the length of the inner lobe in rear view. Subgenital plate of female not bulging ventrally, and with a defined central horizontal ridge.................................................. 5

5(4). Inner lobe of male paramere, in rear view, only slightly shorter than outer lobe. Female subgenital plate, in profile, triangular............................................... H. huasachae Caldwell  

— Inner lobe of male paramere, in rear view, about ½ the length of the outer lobe or less. Female subgenital plate, in profile, rounded............................................ H. quassiae Crawford
