Notes

The butterfly is not uncommon in montane forest at low to moderate elevations and is frequently found on forest paths and edge of forests.
There is a point of view that a taxon of Indo-china as ssp.birmana, however all examined materials are no difference from Malaysian ssp.eudoxa. Therefore, I regard it as ssp.eudoxa.
