Notes

The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt.50m - 800m) and males are territorial on shrubs.
The population in Chiang Mai area is rather variable. It is generally ssp.anamita, however occasionally individuals closer to ssp.vallona are also seen. It seems a transition zone between ssp.vallona and ssp.annamita.
