Can someone let me know the current state of these two generic names?  We
have a few nice swallowtails in this area (eastern tiger, spicebush, giant,
black, palamedes) which I am under the impression are Papilio species.  Are
they Pterourus instead?  Is this a matter of some debate amongst lep
taxonomists?  Please chime in. Thanks!
