Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

The taxon represented by the nominal species Euploea subdita Moore is currently treated on subjective grounds as being the same as the taxon represented by the older-established nominal species Euploea layardi Druce, 1874 (Proc. zool. Soc. Lond. 1874 : 103-104, pl. 16, fig. 1) ; further, that taxon is currently treated as a form of the taxon represented by the nominal species Papilio sore Cramer, [1780] (Uitl. Kapellen 3 (23) : 133, pl. 266, figs E, F).

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
