Notes
The butterfly is common in montane forest at moderate to high levations (alt.550m - 1600m).
The relationship between taxon odilina from C.Myanmar to C.Thailand and ssp.julii from Vietnam to S.E.Thailand is difficult to establish. Taxon julii barely occurs a distinct dry season form like odilina even in the dry season. On the other hand, the wet season form of ssp.odilina cannot be distinguished from ssp.julii. I assume they are a large cline from Vietnam to C.Myanmar. Further taxonomic study is needed.
