Taxonomic history

Originally described as Parnassius delphius Eversmann forme géographique diaphana Verity, 1907
Treated as a subspecies of Parnassius delphius (Eversm.) by Rothschild (1918: 255). Treated as a synonym of Koramius acdestis cinerosus (Stichel, 1907) by Bryk (1935: 575).

Remarks

Probably objectively invalid as junior objective synonym of cinerosus Stichel, 1907. It still needs to be confirmed whether the type specimen illustrated by Verity is identical with that illustrated by Oberthür (1894).
