Notes
The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.700m - 1300m). Male frequently makes a territory on the trees around the hilltops.
Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded it from "Chaiyaphum", N.E.Thailand, however according to Kimura et al.,2016, it is a misidentification of Euthalia malaccana.
