Notes

The butterfly is common in montane dense forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.400m - 1300m).
Kimura et al.,2016 recorded Thauria lathy gabrieli female at Chiang Dao, however I have never seen reliable male specimens of lathy until now and I suspect it should be this species.
The relationship of taxa aliris and lathy is still unclear and hitherto sympatrically of both taxon has been unconfirmed. Further taxonomic study is needed.
