Notes
The butterfly is common in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.300m - 1600m) and it has been observed frequently they prefer to settle on the dead leaves.
The distribution is similar to that of inachus and both species are sympatric in many localities and this species is commoner than inachus.
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.
