Notes

This taxon is considered to be an intermediate between nominotypical subspecies and ssp.kuangtungensis. The population seems rather variable and has unstable markings. It might be included in the nominotypical subspecies or ssp.kuangtungensis, however due to the small number of the examined specimens, I tentatively treat it as ssp.teruyoae. Further taxonomic study is needed.
