Hemming (1967) stated:-

Herrich-Schaeffer's paper was published in instalments. In the first instalment published in 1864 the name Apaturina appeared in a key without included species; the descriptive notes appeared in 1865 in the second instalment and it was here that Papilio erminea was cited as sole species


The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
