Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in secondary forests at low to moderate elevations (Alt. 10 - 600m) and is frequently found at parks or gardens. Both sexes visit flowers.
Corbet (1941:105) suggested that the type specimen of cornelia was obtained from "Pulau Salang" [Phuket] or the Malay Peninsula.
