Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The name Papilio coenobita Fabricius for the type-species of this genus is invalid, for it is a junior homonym of Papilio coenobita Cramer, [1780] (Uitl. Kapellen 4 (25) : 15, pl. 296, figs C, D). I have provided (1964, Annot. lep. (4) : 144) the replacement name Pseudoneptis ianthe.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
