The life history and ecology of A. caucasica has been studied in detail by Hensle (1993), Nardelli (1993a, 1993b), Hesselbarth et al. (1995), and von Stetten (2002). Described originally as a subspecies of A. cerisy, A. caucasica was first given species status by Kuhna (1977). Hesselbarth et al. (1995) provided synonymies for A. caucasica (Type locality: Kutaisi, Georgia), including A. c. tkatschukovi Sheljuzhko, 1927 (Type locality: Sotshi, Caucasus), A. c. cachetica Sheljuzhko, 1927 (Type locality: Lagodechi, SE Caucasus), and A. c. abanti Koçak, 1975 (Type locality: Abant Golu, Bolu prov., Turkey).
