There are currently four species recognized within the genus Luehdorfia. They are distributed in China, Korea, Russian Far East, and Japan, and they have larvae that feed on species of Asarum, Heterotropa, and Asiasarum (Aristolochiaceae) (Matsumoto, 1989; Matsumoto et al., 1993; Igarashi, 2003). Numerous studies on the distribution, wing pattern, life history, behavior, population dynamics, cross breeding, chromosomes and biochemistry of Luehdorfia japonica and L. puziloi have been published by Japanese researchers (for a detailed list of such publications, see Makita et al., 2000).
