Notes:
Hemming (1967) stated:-

Stoll considered that his Papilio eupalemon was a Lycaenid butterfly of the "Plebius Ruralis" Section of the genus Papilio and a similar view was taken by Hübner. Kirby in 1871 (Syn. Cat. diurn. Lep. : 526) placed this species in the Hesperiids. Scudder (1875, loc. cit.) pointed out that Stoll's species was not a butterfly.

The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
