Notes

The butterfly is uncommon in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.800m - 1100m).
Examples from Kanchanaburi and Tak (Mae Chan dist.) seem to be ssp.uniformis, however these are from only under side of nature photos. Ssp.angelica and ssp.uniforms seem to be distributed separately in the north-east and south-west mountain range in Umphang. Further taxonomic study and distributional research are needed.
