Memo: Hemming (1967) stated:- Swainson wrote of this genus : "Types, Cressida heliconides and harmonides", but, as he cited two, and not one nominal species, this action of his is of no nomenclatorial significance. The taxon represented by the nominal species Cressida heliconides is currently identified subjectively on taxonomic grounds with that represented by the nominal species Papilio cressida Fabricius, 1775 (Syst. Ent. : 448). The higher classification used here follows Lamas (2008).
