- Chitoria sordida
- Chitoria ulupi
The type species, Apatura sordida Moore , appears to be very closely related to Apatura, s. s., and Chitoria is thus viewed as a synonym of Apatura by many authors. However, molecular data (Wahlberg unpubl.) imply that C. ulupi is not closely-related to Apatura. Further sampling of apaturine taxa is needed to resolve this problem.
