Notes
The butterfly is common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.50m - 1300m) and is frequently found on the edge of the forest and forest paths.
In Nan prov., hitherto only ssp.thaithummakulorum has been known in Pua dist. for over 20 years, and ssp.nolana is found only Chiang Klang dist., opposit mountains range of Pua dist.
However, in 2020, Mr.Antonio Giudici found ssp.thaithummakulorum and ssp.nolana occur together in Pua dist. Possibly, ssp.nolana might be expanding its distribution due to environmental changes, such as desiccation.
