Notes
The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at high elevations (alt.1600m - 2500m) and is frequently found on the hill-top. Male makes a territory on the shrubs near the forest edge.
Kimura et al.,2014 pointed out, examples of Doi Inthanon are different from populations in Fang district. However, I consider it is not remarkable difference, therefore I treat it as ssp.learmondi. And only one example is known from Nan province, N.Thailand. Although I treat as this taxon provisionally, further taxonomic and distribution studies are needed.
