Can I suggest that your friend chooses Zerynthia polxena or Z. cerisy if he
intends to breed? Z rumina is a finicky feeder and is happy on Aristolchia
baetica, A longa, A rotunda & A. pistolochia (Western European Aristolochia
species) but refuses Aristolochia debilis the main Japanese Aristolochia
available. Zerynthia polyxena, Z. cerisy &  Archon apollinus on the other
hand will take A. debilis.
