Verz. bekannt. Schmett. (7): 111. Type-species: Papilio otreus Stoll, 1780, Uitl. Kapellen 4(28): 78, pl. 328, fig. F, (34): 252 (index) (= Papilio philemon Fabricius, 1775, Syst. Entomol.: 534, no. 392; synonym: a subspecies of Papilio arcas Drury, 1773, Ill. Nat. Hist. 1: 38, pl. 19, figs. 5, 6; 2: index), by designation of Scudder (1875), Proc. Am. Acad. Arts Sci., Boston 10(2): 164, no. 384.

=    Melanthes Mabille, 1903

In: Wytsman, Gen. Ins. (17a): 47, 80. Type-species: Nisoniades brunnea Herrich-Schäffer, 1865, Corresp-Bl. zool.-min. Ver. Regensburg 18(11/12): 172, no. 3, by designation of Lindsey (1921), Bull. Labs. Nat. Hist. St. Univ. Iowa 9(4): 48.

=    Brachycoryne Mabille, 1883

Annls. Soc. Entomol. Belg. 27(c.r.)(31): liii (as “Brachycorynae”). Type-species: Papilio flyas Stoll, 1780, Uitl. Kapellen 4(28): 78, pl. 328, fig.

Hist. 1: 38, pl. 19, figs. 5, 6; 2: index), by monotypy. It has been considered by some (e.g., Hemming (1967), Bull. Brit. Mus. (Nat. Hist.) Entomol. Suppl. 9: 80) that this name only became available when Mabille later published it in 1904 (in: Wytsman, Gen. Ins. (17b): 47, 81); however, Brachycoryne Mabille, 1883, is available from its first use (Code Article 32.5.2.7).
