Notes

The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt.450m - 700m).
As mentioned in Euthalia evelina annamita, the population in Chiang Mai area is rather variable. It is generally ssp.anamita, however occasionally individuals closer to ssp.vallona are seen. It seems a transition zone between ssp.vallona and ssp.annamita. The population of Mae Hong Son is tentatively treated as this taxon, but since only one male specimen has been examined, further taxonomic study is needed.
