Notes
The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.100m - 1000m).
Kimura et al.,2014 regarded population from Peninsular Thailand as ssp.odon, however I could not find any differences from the continental population. Therefore, I consider all populations from Thailand are ssp.continentalis.
