Notes
The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.450m - 1200m). Male makes a territory on the trees and shrubs.
Female is polymorphic and very variable. Corbet,1940 mentioned the type locality of ssp.elsiei is Mergui (S.Myanmar). However, judging from the original description, it seems likely to be Assam to N.Shan States as described by Evans.
