First given species rank by Larsen (1976), the life history of Allancastria deyrollei has been studied extensively (De Freina, 1979, 1987; Nardelli, 1993; Hesselbarth et al., 1995; Hensle, 1993). No subspecies are recognized; the names A. d. eisneri Bernandi, 1971 (Type locality: Aintab, Turkey) and A. d. lycaoniae Eisner and Wagner, 1974 (Type locality: Aksehir, Konya, Turkey) have been synonymized with nominal A. d. deyrollei (Type locality: Pontus, Trabzon, Turkey) (Hesselbarth et al., 1995). Larsen (1973) compared the structure of genitalia in A. deyrollei with that of A. cerisy, and De Freina (1979) provided further characters distinguishing A. cerisy from A. deyrollei. Carbonell and Karbalaye (1998) mapped the records of A. deyrollei (and a few other Aristolochia-feeder species) in relation to the distribution of Aristolochia in Iran.
