Notes
The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.30m - 700m). Male occasionally makes a territory on the trees at the hilltops.
Talbot,1936 recorded this species from northern Thailand however is considered to be Euthalia djata osadai based on the description.
The taxon is found in peninsular Thailand south of Ranong. I suspect that the type locality "Bangkok" in original description might be an erroneous locality. Further distribution research is needed.
