Notes
The butterfly is locally common on the hilltops and occurs sympatrically with Horaga onyx sardonyx. Time of male activity is different between the two species. In syrinx from about 11:00 to 14:30 while in onyx from about 15:00 to 16:00.
The distribution of this subspecies in peninsula region, excluding Yala, needs further confirmation with reliable specimens.
