Specimen data: HT (♂, P. Pogge leg.)
Additional information: "HOLOTYPE ♂: ? DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO: 'Guinea - ob an der Küste oder weit im Innern ... nach einem ♂'. (Honrath, 1884:210). MNHU [...] Papilio poggianus Honrath (1884) was described from a single specimen collected by Dr P.Pogge and seen by Honrath in the Berlin Entomological Museum, now MNHU. [...] The specimen itself is readily identifiable in MNHU, matching closely Honrath's figure (1884). It bears a locality label reading 'Guinea inter/Pogge', a determination label reading 'Poggianus/Honrath *' and a further determination label also giving the reference. These labels appear to have been written by H. Dewitz, who was curator of the collection at the time (Horn et al., 1990: 91, pl. 8 fig. 1). A further printed label gives collection number 22881."
