Data on type locality, general area of distribution, typical habitats, pre-imaginal stages and life-history are presented in each essay, of which text is illustrated with colour photographs of collection specimens, butterflies in a natural setting, pre-imaginal stages, food-plants and typical biotopes.

Spreading of subspecies is given in the distribution map for each species. This edition is a prolongation of a series (the first book, also in two volumes, was devoted to Papilionoidea fauna in Dzhungar, Tien Shan, Alai and Eastern Pamirs). A 21-page addendum to that work is included here.
