Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

Prior to Scudder's selection of the above species as type-species, Blanchard in 1850 (Hist. Hist Ins. 3 : 444) selected Papilio hiarba Fabricius, 1793, but that selection was invalid, as that species was not one of those included in the genus Boisduval in 1833.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
