Hello Jan, I have used several keys but you can simply use Paul Beuk's key: http://www.online-keys.net/infusions/keys/keys_print.php?key_no=34#c23
I have been working in depth for a few years on the Psilidae, including the Chamaepsila, the most problematic genus. I base my work mainly on the examination of genitalia, which allows me to make a good identification and to select the right external criteria to identify the species. An article on the Western European Chamaepsila is forthcoming, including descriptions of 3 new species and many illustrations of the terminalia. It's good to see your specimens in natura, it's a change from mine alcohol!
All the best !
