“The Hesperidae or Skippers, so called from their jerky hesitating mode of flight, show, in the thickness of their bodies, the only partially erect way in which they hold their wings when at rest, and the enclosure of their pupa in a cacoon, a distinct approach to the other great division of the Lepidoptera.” — Encyclopedia Britanica; 1893
