Taxonomic history

Originally described as Papilio Linnaeus, 1758 (Princeps Hübner, [1807]) Nom. nov. arnoldiana Vane-Wright, 1995

Remarks

Proposed as replacement name for Papilio cynorta arnoldi Poulton, 1926, which is invalid as a junior primary homonym of Papilio rex arnoldi Richelmann, 1909. Originally described as a subspecies of P. cynorta and treated as such by most authors (e.g., Carcasson 1975, Collins & Morris 1985, D'Abrera 1980), but recently regarded as a separate species by Ackery et al. (1995:139), and Hancock (1989, 1993); the nominal taxon was previously known under the name arnoldi Poulton, which, however, is invalid as a junior primary homonym
