Notes
The butterfly is found locally and seasonally and is not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.350m - 1200m).
Kawahara,2013 synonymized all taxa with nominotypical subspecies. However I consider some taxa to be good subspecies. Therefore, I tentatively follow the conventional classification.
