Brief SummaryRead full entry
Koçak (1981) subjectively gave a species rank to A. cretica. The argument for such an arrangement was presented only much later by Carbonell (1996) who studied the life history and genitalia of A. cretica and its taxonomic relationship with other species of Allancastria. Hürter (2001) described inter-specific hybrids with A. cerisy. Also see Pamparis (1997). No subspecies are recognized.
