Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at high elevations (Alt. 2100m - 2200m) and is frequently found on top of mountains. Males are territorial on shrubs.
Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded it from "Doi Inthanon", however it is considered to be a misidentification or erroneous location. Hitherto this species has never been found there.
