Notes
The classification of this species and clarissa in continental taxon has long been confused. Fruhstorfer,1912 in Seitz regarded militum, falcata and lioneli as subspecies of clarissa, After that Tsukada,1985 regarded them as subspecies of atlita. However, in fact, the continental militum, falcata and lioneli are clarissa as Fruhstorfer pointed out.
The identification between atlita and clarissa; In atlita the dark brown spot present in the center of submarginal pale purple mark of space 7 on the unf, while in clarissa, this mark at the inside.
In Laos, it was found in lowland semi-dried forest together with clarissa militum. However, this species is more localized and rarer than clarissa. and in Thailand, only a female shown above has been known.
