Notes
The butterfly is common in semi-dried forest at low to moderate elevations.
Saito & Seki,2003 treated phama as a synonym of hewitsoni. The population from Omkoi, Chiang Mai is different from tavoyana. In this area, the female as tavoyana has not been found. And female similar to Omkoi has not been found from other areas in Thailand. This is considered to be ssp.geta. But in Lak Sao, Laos, Both tavoyana and geta occur together. The relationship between these will require further taxonomic review in the future.
