Taxonomic history

Originally described as Papilio Latr. species oceanus Felder & Felder, 1864
Treated as a synonym of Papilio priamus boisduvalii Montr., 1856 by Kirby (1871: 517). Treated as a synonym of Troides priamus boisduvali (Montrouzier, 1856) by Rothschild (1895: 191). Treated as a synonym of Ornithoptera priamus boisduvalii (Montrouzier, 1856) by Tennent (2006: 21).

Remarks

The name is exclusively based on a published description by Montrouzier (1856: 393), for which the specimen(s) mentioned by this author thus constitute the type material. Proposed as a [unnecessary] replacement name for Ornithoptera boisduvalii Montrouzier, 1856, of which it is thereby an objective synonym.
