Phetchaburi : 1♂ (photo by A.Giudici)
The butterfly is locally uncommon in montane dense bamboo forest at moderate elevations (alt.800m - 1100m).
S. godfreyi is found sympatrically in many habitats, however is much rarer than S. godfreyi.
Recently it was found in Phetchaburi area, but was taken only photos in the field. It is likely to belong to this subspecies, however further taxonomic study is needed.
