Title: The occurrence of aristolochic acids in neotropical troidine swallowtails (Lepidoptera : Papilionidae)
Author: Klitzke, CF
Brown, KS
Abstract: Analysis of individuals of 17 troidine species demonstrated the presence of aristolochic acids in these butterflies in varying concentrations. Although aristolochic acids do not occur in Aristolochia galeata leaves, they were present in Battus polydamas larvae reared on these leaves, and thus may be synthesized by the larvae from chemical precursors in the plant.
