Video link below. In these dark pandemic days, a lighthearted look at the
evolution of entomological taxonomy. They could be representative of  the
first lepidopterists (considering that said subject is a caterpillar) if
not the first entomologists. Note that they use what is probably one of the
earliest scientific methods - if unsure about something then poke at it.
This was probably followed in evolution by the development of the stick
(once a few hands or fingers were bitten off or otherwise singed by the
test subject :)
