Notes

The butterfly is common in secondary and montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.50m - 1100m).
According to Aoki & Yamaguchi,1984 and Kimura et al.,2016, the markings and genitalia of the populations from Myanmar, continental Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and C. & S.Vietnam differ significantly from those of the nominotypical subspecies. Kimura et al.,2016 tentatively treated it as ssp.subfasciata, but they also questioned this treatment. Therefore, I tentatively treat the population in N.Vietnam as the nominotypical subspecies, and the other continental populations as ssp. Further taxonomic and distributional studies are needed.
