 Comments
       
  Comment: Classification of the family Hesperiidae follows Warren et al. (2009). Seven subfamilies are recognized. Tribes are recognized under Pyrginae and Hesperiinae; tribal placement of many Old World hesperiine genera remains ambiguous  
    Pelham (2008:20) states that although Pyrginae Burmeister, 1878 "is junior to Pyrrhopygini Mabille, 1877, it is maintained as the most widely used name for this family group (Code Article 35.5)"
