Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.30m - 550m) and frequently comes to rotten fruits that have fallen to the ground.
There is a female specimen from "Chiang Dao, Chiang Mai" in Sukkit collection, but it is considered an incorrect data. Pinratana,1983 recorded it from "Chanthaburi", however it is also doubtful. Therefore I treat these as a reference record until a reliable specimen is rediscovered.
