The Baekdudaegan Mountain Range is home to a wide range of organisms inhabiting the Korean Peninsula. This study monitored butterfly communities of Guryongryeong (Myeonggye-ri) and Gojingkyeong (Seobyeok-ri) from April to September in 2013 to 2014, and the results were compared with previous data to determine changes in their distribution. We found 1,098 butterflies of 65 different species in Myeonggye-ri, and 1,161 butterflies of 63 different species in Seobyeok-ri. Comparing the two regions, 13 species appeared only in Seobyeok-ri and 15 species appeared only in Myeonggae-ri. When species were ranked according to number of individuals, the top species three species were as follows: Artogeia melete (127, 11.6%), A. napi (100, 9.1%), and Papilio maackii (90, 8.2%) in Myeonggye-ri; and Libythea celtis (146, 12.6%), A. napi (134, 11.5%), and Polygonia c-aureum (69, 5.9%) in Seobyeok-ri. The number of species with fewer than three individuals each was 24 in Myeonggye-ri and 23 in Seobyeok-ri, accounting for a high percentage among the total number of species. The similarities between the two regions were relatively high, and many of the butterflies are on the Red List of Korea. Compared with previous distribution data, there were no significant changes. This consistency indicates that the butterflies of the Baekdudaegan Mountain Range have been conserved well, and therefore the continuity in the Baekdudaegan Mountain Range is necessary to keep in the big picture.
