Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.600m - 1200m).
Nakamura,2021 recorded Enispe duranius and Enispe euthymius in Bolikhamxai, Laos where they are found sympatrically.
This species is distinguishable from Enispe euthymius by only examination of male genitalia. Therefore, record that have not been examined male genitalia cannot be used. A photo example from Phetchaburi might be this species, but of course it needs to be confirmed by specimens. Further study is needed.
