A mainly neotropical genus. Two species, Anartia lytrea and A. chrysopelea, occur in the greater Antilles. A. jatrophae, the white peacock, is widespread from the southern U. S. throughout tropical South America. A. fatima occurs in Mexico and Central America and meets South American A. amathea in Panama, where the two intermingle in a hybrid zone (Dasmahaptra et al. 2003).
