Notes

The butterfly is not rare in montane dense forest mixed with bamboo at low to moderate elevations (alt.50m - 500m) and often comes to rotten fruits that has fallen to the ground. They prefer in the dark jungle and suddenly fly out from below. Flight is fast and quickly fly away into the bush.
