Lemma 61.51.1. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. If $f$ is locally quasi-finite and separated, then $f$ is representable.

Proof. This is immediate from Proposition 61.50.2 and the fact that being locally quasi-finite and separated is preserved under any base change, see Lemmas 61.27.4 and 61.4.4. $\square$

Wouldn't it be better to move this lemma to the preceding section? Once this is done, one could change the section title "Applications" to something more descriptive, e.g., to "Etale universally injective morphisms".

Yeah, this is something that is bothering me too. Maybe eventually we should just replace the statement in Proposition 61.50.2 to the statement of this lemma (because we are always allowed to strengthen statements of lemmas, propositions, and theorems) and then move this lemma into the obsolete chapter. Leaving this for now.
