Taxonomy[edit]

See Ackery (1975), Larsen (1973), Kuhna (1977) [4] Kocak (1975, 1977) [5] [6] , de Freina (1979) [7] Vazrick Nazari and Felix A. H. Sperling (2007).[8] Ackery (1975) pointed out that Zerynthia is a junior synonym of Parnalius Rafinesque, 1815 published as a replacement name for the preoccupied Thais Fabricius and moreover correctly listed by Sherborne (1929) Neave (1940) and Cowan (1970). Parnalius has subsequently been suppressed cf. The Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature. 36 (1979): 102)
