Notes
The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.1000m - 1600m) and is frequently found on the hills or ridges. Male makes a territory on the trees.
Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded it from Doi Phu Kha, Nan however I have never seen specimen from there. Thus it is likely to be an incorrect data.
