New to Thailand. The first record is taken photo by Mr.Satawan Atdhabhan at Betong, Yala on 9.Apr.2016 and a specimen was obtained by Mr.Les Day on 26.Apr.2016.
The butterfly is uncommon in primary forest at moderate elevations and is more cautious than other species.
I suspect thalebanus might be the same species as this species. Further taxonomic study is needed.
