Lemma 79.5.4. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $F : (\mathit{Sch}/S)_{fppf}^{opp} \to \textit{Sets}$ be a functor. Let $X$ be a scheme and let $X \to F$ be representable by algebraic spaces and locally quasi-finite. Then $X \to F$ is representable (by schemes).

**Proof.**
Let $T$ be a scheme and let $T \to F$ be a morphism. We have to show that the algebraic space $X \times _ F T$ is representable by a scheme. Consider the morphism

Since $X \times _ F T \to T$ is locally quasi-finite, so is the displayed arrow (Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 66.27.8). On the other hand, the displayed arrow is a monomorphism and hence separated (Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 66.10.3). Thus $X \times _ F T$ is a scheme by Morphisms of Spaces, Proposition 66.50.2. $\square$
