Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Luehdorfia eximia Crüger is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same as that represented by the older-established nominal species Thais puziloi Erschoff, 1872 (Hor. Soc. ent. ross. 8 : 315).

This generic name was published in the form Lühdorfia, but that method of spelling is not permissible under Article 32 (c)(i) and in accordance with the provisions of that Article is here corrected to Luehdorfia.

LUEHDORFIA was included within the subfamily PAPILIONIDAE: PARNASSIINAE by Ackery et al., in Kristensen (1999).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
