Synonymy: Papilio ornythion Boisduval, 1836
Taxonomic Notes: Heraclides ornythion (Boisduval, 1836) was formerly placed in the genus Papilio. The name Heraclides was treated as a valid genus in Miller & Brown (1981) and as a synonym of Papilio in the 1983 Hodges Checklist. Subsequent authors, i. e. Tyler et al. (1994), Lamas (2004) and Shiraiwa & Grishin (2014), have retained Heraclides as valid.
