Your question is interesting, and it is part of the reason that I started needlelacetalk. I myself am not knowledgable enough to distinguish all the various needle laces from each other. (I am far more of an expert on bobbin laces. But I am a great admirer of needle lace and those who make it.) So far as I know the only online material about lace identification aim at showing how to distinguish needle lace from bobbin lace, or from embroidered net, or from machine lace. I am not aware of any site that will help you with the fine details of the various needle laces. Here on this network we have members who have tried to learn various of these national or geography-based laces, and in specific cases they can probably tell you some of what you want to know.

the first thing would be to join our  HISTORY-IDENTIFICATION group and ask your specific questions there.  If you look at our YOUGHAL-KENMARE group you will find a book review I did last year for a book put out by Elizabeth Kurella, a lace merchant. She used laces she had access to and a simple how-to book by the late Irma Osterman. From that book I learned that the Irish needle laces used only a single thread as the outlining thread for the motifs and whole lace. Other western and central European needle laces used a double outlining thread. 

In your example of Burano -- I have been trying to figure that out myself. (What the distinguishing features are.) 

If you go to each of our groups, there will be a recommended book list in most. These lists will include how-to books that might help you make the distinctions that you want to do. Also, in our BEGINNERS group the list includes Barley, Earnshaw, Delesques-Depalle. These all have chapters on several laces and discuss the technical differences between them. 

Also our PHOTOS are sorted into albums, some by those who posted the photos, and some that I have collected in order to bring laces identified as of the same sort into groups that can be studied for specific differences. What I am trying to say is that I do not know of any reliable site that can answer your question. We are working on it ourselves, slowly. Some of our members have posted photos of antique laces in their collections, often with knoledgable comments. You might also look at those albums.
