Notes
The butterfly is uncommon in forest at low to moderate elevations.
Examples from Vietnam are rather different. Further study is needed to the relationship with ssp.archbaldi.
Photo record from Koh Phangan has not been confirmed which subspecies. I treat it as this subspecies provisionally, However, confirmation with specimen is needed in future.
