Hemming (1967) stated:-

The name Papilio acastus Cramer is invalid, as it is a junior homonym of Papilio acastus Linnaeus, 1758 (Syst. Nat. (ed. 10) 1 : 487). The oldest available name for the present taxon is currently considered subjectively to be Papilio barcastus Sepp, 1855 (Natural Hist. Surinam. Vlinders 3 : pl. 138).

MYSORIA was included within the subfamily HESPERIIDAE: PYRRHOPYGINAE by Ackery et al., in Kristensen (1999).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
