Notes
Some specimens of Phetchaburi to Ranong have distinct white band on the upperside of the forewing. It seems to be a transition to ssp.angelica.
Examples from Kanchanaburi and Tak (Mae Chan dist.) seem to be ssp.uniformis, but these are from only under side of nature photos. Further study is needed of these population by some specimens. Ssp.angelica and ssp.uniforms seem to be distributed separately in the north-east and south-west mountain range in Umphang.
