A. albofasciata, A. artemis, A. leto, A. luzonica and A. yamashitai occur in the Philippines, A. leuce and A. windorum occur on Sulawesi and Sula, and A. chione occurs in the Moluccas and western Irian Jaya (Tennent et al. 2010). Unlike most satyrines, known larval hosts of Acrophtalmia species are members of the lycophyte genus Selaginella. Vane-Wright & de Jong (2003) consider that A. leuce and A. windorum may be a single species.
