Notes
This is quite localized species however is not rare in the habitats. The butterfly is found in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.500m).
The population in N.Thailand has rather large black markings and obscure submarginal markings on the UnF than other taxa. Further taxonomic study is needed.
