Notes
The butterfly is not uncommon and is found locally in montane forest at moderate to high elevations (alt.1000m - 1700m).
After the description of ssp.xamneuaensis, the population from northern Thailand is reexamined. Based on its wing shape and characteristics of the markings, I consider it to be included in this taxon.
