Notes
The butterfly is common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.50m - 1600m) and is frequently found on the edge of the forest or forest paths.
Populations from central to S.E.Thailand have same tendency as Neptis clinia susruta, the white markings on the upper surface are reduced and sullied with black scales, and darker ground color on the underside as move to southward. However it's very variable.
