Abstract: Let $ R$ be a left pure semisimple ring such that there are no non-zero homomorphisms from preinjective modules to non-preinjective indecomposable modules in $ R$-mod, and let $ W$ be the left key $ R$-module; i.e., $ W$ is the direct sum of all non-isomorphic non-preinjective indecomposable direct summands of products of preinjective left $ R$-modules. We show that if the module $ W$ is endofinite, then $ R$ is a ring of finite representation type. This settles a question considered in [L. Angeleri Hügel, A key module over pure-semisimple hereditary rings, J. Algebra 307 (2007), 361-376] for hereditary rings.
