Notes

Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded it from 'Doi Phu Kha, Nan, Thailand', however this is incorrect. The figured specimen shown as male is Papilio janaka and the one shown as female in [2007] is a male of Papilio bootes mindoni. Both were caught in Kachin State, N.Myanmar; this species has not been found in Thailand.
Monastyrskii,2007, 2015 recorded bootes in Vu Quang, central Vietnam. Although we have not confirmed the specimen, it may be similar to this taxon considering its distribution.
