FIGURE 9. Pupa of Zenonia zeno, collected as penultimate instar caterpillar on unidentified grass (? Cynodon sp.), Karura Forest, Nairobi, 8. x. 1989; pupated 20. x.; adult female 4. xi.; ref. 89 / 76 B. 1, dorsolateral view, photographed 20. x., 31 mm; 2, lateral view showing adult wing markings, photographed 3. xi. 
Observations on the Biology of Afrotropical Hesperiidae (Lepidoptera). Part 8. Hesperiinae incertae sedis: Dracaena Feeders.
TLDR
Based on life history information, Gamia and Artitropa are considered likely to form a monophyletic group, probably most closely related to some of the palm-feeding genera currently placed incertae sedis, but formerly in Evans' 1937 Ploetzia group of genera.
Observations on the biology of Afrotropical Hesperiidae (Lepidoptera). Part 7. Hesperiinae incertae sedis: grass and bamboo feeders.
TLDR
Caterpillars shown here are fairly homogeneous, with the head wider nearer the base, and lacking obvious setae on the body, but suggest that pupal characters may be useful in grouping some of the genera of Afrotropical Hesperiinae incertae sedis.
The Skipper Butterflies (Hesperiidae) of Trinidad. Part 19. Hesperiinae, Moncini: the Remaining Genera with Pale Spots: Cymaenes, Cobalopsis, Arita, Lerema, Morys and Tigasis
TLDR
Trinidad and Tobago skipper butterflies of the tribe Mancini (genera Cymaenes, Cobalopsis, Arita, Lerema, Marys and Tigasis) are treated and adults illustrated.
A multilocus phylogenetic framework of the tribe Aeromachini (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae), with implications for taxonomy and biogeography
TLDR
Diversification in situ and range expansion to adjacent areas have played essential roles in the evolution of Aeromachini, but founder‐event speciation and vicariance also have likely been important factors in shaping the biogeographical history of this tribe.
Hostplant change and paleoclimatic events explain diversification shifts in skipper butterflies (Family: Hesperiidae)
TLDR
It is hypothesized that although monocot feeding was an intrinsic trait that allowed exploration of novel niches, the lack of extensive availability of monocots comprised an extrinsic limitation for niche exploration.
Complete mitochondrial genomes of three skippers in the tribe Aeromachini (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae) and their phylogenetic implications
TLDR
Results show that the tribe Aeromachini robustly constitute a monophyletic group in the subfamily Hesperiinae, with the relationships Coeliadinae + (Euschemoninae | Eudaminae + Tagiadinaes) + (Heteropterinae - ((Trapezitinae • Barcinae) + HesperIinae))))).
A critical review of the literature on the pest Erionota spp. (Lepidoptera, Hesperiidae): taxonomy, distribution, food plants, early stages, natural enemies and biological control
The classification, taxonomy, distribution, spread, food plants, early stages, natural enemies and biological control of South-East Asian Erionota spp. (Hesperiidae, Hesperiinae, incertae sedis) are
A re-appraisal of Gegenes Hübner, 1819 (Lepidoptera, Hesperiidae) based on male and female genitalia, with the description of a new genus, Afrogegenes
TLDR
The observation that two well-marked groups can be distinguished, differing in external characters as well as in male and female genitalia, leads to the observation that a new genus is erected, Afrogegenes.
