Records taken from Literature

Arhopala anthelus grahami ; Pinratana,1981 : 76, pl.12, fig.6,♂. (Satun: Ko Tarutao)
Arhopala anthelus grahami ; Kimura et al.,2014 : 53. (Tarutao Is.) (in part)


I tentatively treat ssp.grahami as a subspecies confined to Koh Tarutao in Thailand. It is necessary to examine many specimens between Yala and Nakhon Si Thammarat, and the classification of the subspecies should be re-examined in the future.
