Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in continental area and uncommon in peninsular region in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt. 100m - 1100m).
A photo example from Uthai Thani is similar to this subspecies. Examples from P.Thailand have much more narrow tawny bands on the upperside of both wings than the continental populations. Further taxonomic study is needed.
