Notes
This is the first reliable record from Thailand. Mr. Satawan Atdhabhan took a photo in Betong dist., Yala on 26.August.2015.
As Kimura et al.,2011 pointed out, The records of Evans and Godfrey are supposed to be Tagiades ultra or Tagiades vajuna.
The butterfly was found along the edge of the forest path near the hilltop (alt.970m).
