better separation and Troides Ornithoptera Trogonoptera on funete they go subgenera but have long been considered clans and split into separate genus (eg Ornithoptera)

17.01.2011 14:15, Peter Khramov

The monographs are available to me for ptitsekrylkam genera Ornithoptera and Trogonoptera completely independent in the tribe. In an Internet edistvenny BM major source - funet. Most likely, and all references to Troides priamus (ie Ornithoptera = Troides) from there. Although I am not an expert on butterflies (TB tropics) and, possibly, someone serious tribe was revised. Just wanted to know who and when.

17.01.2011 13:27, Peter Khramov

In the same 9000 in the area of ​​Google results Ornithoptera priamus and in the 6000 Troides priamus. Outside, of course, stupid, but still in the original version with Troides for this kind does not pull ... or what?

17.01.2011 9:28, Evgeny Komarov

And when and by whom the genus Ornithoptera reduced to a synonym for Troides? That's something of a quite original views on the tribe Troidini!
