Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.450m - 1100m).
Inayoshi,2007 reported Charaxes harmodius ssp. from Ranong, P.Thailand, however it is considered to be a misidentification of this species. Moreover I consider the records of harmodius from Vietnam are likely to be this taxon.
