Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.700m - 900m).
The first discovery in Thailand was a photo taken in nature by Mr. Supat Sophonviwatkul on 05.Oct.2003 in Phetchabun, but was thought to be ssp.nothis. Afterwards, several specimens were obtained and confirmed as ssp.sylvarum by Mr. Koichi Yano on 17.Sep.2016.
