Notes

The butterfly is locally uncommon in montane dense forest mixed with bamboo at moderate elevations (alt. 400m - 900m).
Photo records in Phetchabun prov. were taken by Mr.Supat Sophonviwatkul and Mr.Antonio Giudici. However due to the lack of specimen, it was not possible to identify which subspecies. I suppose it is likely to be this subspecies, but we need to confirm with specimens in the future.
