Notes

The butterfly is common in montane forest at low elevation (alt.10m - 450m) and males are territorial on shrubs.
Corbet (1941) assumed that the type locality of julii was Vietnam, judging from the figure in the original description. I also consider that to be the most likely scenario.
The relationship between populations from Vietnam to S.E.Thailand and the ssp.odilina from C.Thailand to C.Myanmar is difficult to establish. This subspecies barely occurs a distinct dry season form like odilina even in the dry season. On the other hand, the wet season form of odilina cannot be distinguished from this subspecies. I assume that they are a large cline from Vietnam to C.Myanmar, and taxon odilina might be a synonym of julii as Monastyrskii (2019) mentioned. Further taxonomic study is needed.
