Notes

New to Vietnam.
The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at low elevations (Alt.10m - 300m) and is often found on forest paths or forest edges.
This species was previously thought to be distributed only south of peninsular Thailand. Recently, however, it was found in C.Vietnam. Pinratana,1979 recorded it from 'Khao Yai, C.Thailand', and I thought it was misidentified or an erroneous locality, but it might be this species. A distribution survey in C. to S.E.Thailand, Cambodia and S.Laos is needed.
