Notes

The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at moderate to high elevations (alt.1000m - 1800m). In some parts of Myanmar and Laos, it occurs with Enispe duranius. Hitherto no sympatric habitat has been found in Thailand, though I think it would be found in the future.
This species is distinguishable from Enispe duranius by only examination of male genitalia. Therefore, record that have not been examined male genitalia cannot be used. The record of Chaiyaphum, C.Thailand is likely to be this species, but need to confirm. Further study is needed.
