Notes
The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt. 20m - 700m). Male makes a territory on the trees about 2 to 3m high at the forest edge and is very cautious.
This taxon and Lasippa tiga siaka are found sympatrically in peninsular to S.E.Thailand, furthermore, the male genitalia is different. Valva of camboja is thin and longer than tiga and heliodore. Therefore I consider camboja ia a distinct species as Eliot,1969 and Kimura et al.,2016 pointed out.
