Cowan (1970: 54) stated:-
PRECIS - has precedence over Alcioneis but after Junonia (q.v.).
Cowan (1970: 41) stated:-
ALCYONEIS and Junonia Hübner,  : 35 and 34, are generally regarded as congeneric.
Precedence was accorded to Junonia by Doubleday, 1849 (Gen. diurn. Lep. 1 : 206), acting as First Reviser.
Cowan (1970, Annot.. Rhop.: 49) stated:-
JUNONIA - The name Papilio lavinia Cramer, 1775 is invalid as a junior primary homonym of P. lavinia Fabricius, 1775, Syst. Ent. : 450, a name currently placed in the genus Victorina. The oldest valid name subjectively applicable to the present restricted species appears to be P. evarete Cramer, , Uitl. Kap. 3 : 18, pl. 203, figs. C, D. However, the wider view was
put by Corbet, 1948 (Entomologist 81 : 54-56), that lavinia, evarete and others are subspecies of the pan-tropical Papilio orithya Linnaeus, 1758, Syst. Nat. (ed. 10) 1 : 473.
As has been noted under Alcyoneis above, and Precis below, Junonia has precedence over both.
Precis Hübner, was brought out of synonymy by Tilden, 1973, Journal Res. Lepid. 12 (4) : 216. [Treated as a valid genus by Hemming, 1967].
The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
