Notes
The butterfly is common in forest at low to moderate elevations.
It is a tendency the female red patch on the upf is getting smaller and smaller towards north to south.
Photo record from Phetchaburi have not been confirmed which subspecies. I regard it as this subspecies provisionally, However confirmation by specimen is needed in future.
