Notes
The butterfly is locally very common in montane forest.
The 2nd generation (from end of March to April) of North Thailand is very large in size and brighter marking on the UpF. Pinratana,1996, Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 and Kimura et al.,2016 treated it as ssp.eudamippus. However other generation in this area is not large and bright, they are same as ordinary ssp.nigrobasalis. Therefore I treat it as ssp.nigrobasalis for the time being. Further study is needed to all indochinese region in the future.
