Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Hesperia manataaqua Scudder is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds (based upon the figure of the holotype in Jones's Icones) as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Hesperia origenes Fabricius, 1793 (Ent. syst. 3 (1) : 328).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
