Taxonomic history

Originally described as Parnassius sp. hide Koiwaya, 1987
Treated as a species of Parnassius (Koramius) by Weiss (1992: 89). Treated as a species of Parnassius by Chou (1994), and Sorimachi (1995). Treated as a possibly distinct species of Parnassius Latreille, 1804 (Koramius Moore, 1902) or as possibly conspecific with Parnassius (Koramius) patricius Niepelt, 1911 by Häuser (1993: 138). Here, the taxon is regarded as conspecific with Patricius patricius with which it is closely related and from which it is geographically separated [C. Häuser].
