Notes

The butterfly is very common in montane and secondary forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.10m - 1300m).
Populations from Chanthaburi, S.E.Thailand tend to white markings on the upper surface to be reduced and sullied with black scales, and darker ground color on the under side. However it's very variable.
