Notes
The butterfly is locally not rare in montane foreat at low to moderate elevations.
Populations in Laos and Vietnam are highly variable in individual and regional variations. In particular, populations in C. to S.Vietnam are quite variable and unstable. I treat these populations as this taxon tentatively due to insufficient comparison, however may be divided into several taxa in the future.
Furthermore I suspect these taxa might be subspecies of Euthalia mahadeva. Although I follow the classical classification provisionally, further taxonomic study is needed including DNA analysis.
