Lemma 86.9.4. Let $X_\lambda , \lambda \in \Lambda $ and $X = \mathop{\mathrm{colim}}\nolimits X_\lambda $ be as in Definition 86.9.1. If $Y$ is a quasi-compact algebraic space over $S$, then any morphism $Y \to X$ factors through an $X_\lambda $.

**Proof.**
Choose an affine scheme $V$ and a surjective étale morphism $V \to Y$. The composition $V \to Y \to X$ factors through $X_\lambda $ for some $\lambda $ by the discussion following Definition 86.9.1. Since $V \to Y$ is a surjection of sheaves, we conclude.
