The life history of A. apollinus is discussed and illustrated at length by Higgins (1975), De Freina (1985), Carbonell (1991), Hensle (1993), Nardelli (1993), Hesselbarth et al. (1995), and Löbel and Drechsel (1996). Genitalia of A. apollinus have been illustrated by Higgins (1975). De Freina (1985) and Hesselbarth et al. (1995) present discussions on the taxonomy and subspecies of A. apollinus, synonymizing most of the subspecies described for A. apollinus with the nominal subspecies, and distinguishing A. apollinaris as a separate species. Köstler and Abajiev (1998) discuss the origin of the Greek population of A. apollinus and conclude that it was introduced from Turkey during World War I.
