Notes

The butterfly is uncommon in montane forest at low to moderate elevations. Male is occasionally found on hilltops.
The population in Phetchaburi,northern peninsular Thailand has only a photo record and no specimens are available, thus it is unclear to which subspecies it belongs. Confirmation by specimen is needed.
