Notes

The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at low elevations (Alt.30m - 450m) and is often found on forest paths or forest edges.
Although tentatively treated as ssp.cresina, the population from S.Vietnam is rather different from other taxa and is likely to be an distinct subspecies. Further taxonocim study is needed.
