Hemming (1967) stated:-
For some inexplicable reasons some authors formerly rejected or overlooked Scudder's selection of Papilio hordonia Stoll as the type-species of this genus and treated it as though its type-species was Papilio sulpitia Cramer, .
The result was very unfortunate, the true Pantoporia (with Papilio hordonia as type-species) is a Neptid, while the false Pantoporia (with its pseudotype Papilio sulpitia) is a Limenitid. The oldest available generic name for the false Pantoporia is, as pointed out by myself in 1934 (Gen. Names hol. Butts 1 : 87), Parathyma Moore, .
Cowan (1968: 14) stated:-
PANTOPORA, line 6: "Cramer 1799" should read; Cramer 1779.
The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
