Populations from W.Malaysia, P.Thailand and C.Vietnam have very reduced red markings on the male UpF. It seems to be different taxon. Further taxonomic study is needed.
Of the illustrated males from Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012, the one on the left individual is considered to be from Malaysia. A photo record was taken by Mr.Satawan Atdhabhan on 31.Dec.2015 in Yala, P.Thailand. It seems to be the same taxon, however need to be confirmed by specimens.
