The Loepa are large and very attractive moths, with over fifty species occurring throughout southeast Asia. Many look quite similar and it isn't always easy to make a correct identification. Detailed information about the origin usually helps a lot.

This genus has a strong affiliation with the Vitaceae plant family and many species can be reared on Vitis, Cissus and/or Parthenocissus. Salix caprea can sometimes work as a (poorly accepted) alternative.
