Introduction

The swallowtail subfamily Baroniinae contains a single species: Baronia brevicornis. This species is believed to be the most "primitive" of the living swallowtails, a hypothesis which has been supported by morphological and molecular data (Miller 1987, Caterino et al. 2001). New molecular evidence, however, provides evidence that it may be a sister only to Parnassiinae (Nazari et al., 2007).

Baronia brevicornis is a threatened butterfly that has a very small home range in Mexico.
