A skipper or skipper butterfly is a butterfly of the family Hesperiidae. They are named after their quick, darting flight habits. Hesperiinae larvae feed on grasses and sedges. Adults typically visit flowers and hold their wings together while feeding. They hold their wings partially open while resting, with the front wings and hind wings held at different angles. They are usually orange, rust, or brown in colour and have pointed forewings. Many species have dark markings or black stigmas on their forewings.
