The specimens shown above are the first finding in Thailand.
The butterfly is uncommon in montane forest at moderate elevations (Alt.1100m - 1300m). This species is found sympatric with Pseudocoladenia dan fabia in its habitat. However, it has not been confirmed to be sympatric with other fatua or sp. in Thailand until now.
