The regions of existence and stability of dark solitons in the Lugiato-Lefever model with normal chromatic dispersion are described.
These localized states are shown to be organized in a bifurcation structure known as collapsed snaking implying the presence of
a region in parameter space with a finite multiplicity of dark solitons. For some parameter values dynamical instabilities are
responsible for the appearance of oscillations and temporal chaos. The importance of the results for understanding frequency comb generation in microresonators is emphasized.
