Notes

The butterfliy is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.450m - 1200m). Males are territorial on shrubs at forest edges.
A female example from Prachuap Khiri Khan seems to be ssp.continentalis rather than ssp.unicolor. I regard it as this subspecies provisionally. However, confirmation by a male specimen is needed.
