Notes
The butterfly is locally uncommon in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.350m - 550m).
The record of Euthalia adonia beata from northern Thailand by Talbot,1936 is considered to be this species based on the description. Further taxonomic study and distribution research are needed.
