Nomenclature and synonymy
It is unusual that the date of the name of the type species is 150 years later than the date of description of the genus. In this case, Hübner's original type for the genus, Papilio hyperbius Linnaeus 1764, is invalid, being a junior homonym of Papilio hyperbius Linnaeus 1763 (now Argynnis hyperbius (L.)).
