Hi, I want to know why in some books or web pages they put the Hesperiidae family first and in others last, what should be the rigth order? Saludos, Juan

I don't know, I think it's open to debate. Lamas has the Hesperiidae first in his Atlas. The skippers are a separate group from the other 5 families of butterflies, or Papilionoidea.
