Notes

The butterfly is uncommon and very localized in montane forests at moderate elevations (Alt. 700 - 800m). Males come to the banks of streams and puddles to suck water.
The specimen shown above is the first capturing record in Thailand. It was obtained by Antonio Giudici on 28.Oct.2021 at Song Kwae Dist., Nan.
