Interesting Nature Facts #152 – Skippers

by | May 8, 2021

Skippers are a group of butterflies in the Hesperiidae family that are often mistaken for moths, as most of them are drab brown to orange. They have short wings and stubby bodies, but you can always tell it’s a skipper because they have their thin antennae clubs curved backward like a crochet. Moths have elaborate feathery antennae.
