Notes
The butterfly is not rare in primary forest at low elevations (alt.30m - 450m).
Some female examples from Phetchaburi, north part of Peninsular Thailand, have prominent white spots on the forewing and are closer to ssp.sawaja from Myanmar. It seems transition zone between nominotypical subspecies and ssp.sawaja.
