Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt.30m - 900m).
According to Eliot,1980, Pendlebury,1939 described ssp.keda from a male holotype from Kedah Peak and a female allotype from Langkawi Is., which belong to two different taxa. Thus He regarded ssp.keda as a synonym of ssp.yamuna and described ssp.langkawica from Langkawi population.
