Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Papilio phaedra Linnaeus is currently treated subjectively on taxonomic grounds as being the same at the species-level, though not at the subspecies-level, as that represented by the older -established nominal species Papilio dryas Scopoli, 1763 (Ent. carn. : 153).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
