Notes
The butterfly is locally not rare in montane primeval forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.20m - 600m) and is often found in dark forests.
The populations in Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, Surat Thani province, P.Thailand are closer to this taxon than nominotypical subspecies. I am tentatively treating it as ssp.berthae, even knowing that there are some differences. Further taxonomic study is needed.
