Notes
The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.300m - 700m) and it has been observed frequently they prefer to rest on the dead leaves on trees.
The distribution is similar to that of incognita and both species are sympatric in many localities, however this species is less common than incognita and prefer to occur in lower elevations. Furthermore, the season of occurrence tends to be slightly different. Population of S.E.Thailand has slightly brighter and paler orange band on the UpF.
In Western and South Eastern Thailand, three species of Kallima are sympatric. inachus, incognita and limborgii in W.Thailand and inachus, incognita and alicia in S.E.Thailand.
The past records seem to mix of many species. Therefore, only records confirmed by specimen photo were selected.
