Taxonomic history

Originally described as Parnassius sp. liudongi Huang, 1999


Originally described as a separate species closely related to Parnassius acdestis; in judging from the orginal description, the differences mentioned in male genitalia and female sphragis based on two specimens of each sex do not appear to warrant distinction at species level but rather seem to be within common margins of intraspecific variation of P. acdestis [C.L. Häuser].
