Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt. 30 - 600m).
The populations in P.Thailand (excluding Pattani to Yala) and northwards have a broader forewing border and more shining blue ground color on the upperside than ssp.malayana. It seems intermediate between ssp.malayana and ssp.aria.
Les Day,2011-2022 recorded both Arhopala atosia and lurida from Koh Samui, but these are only underside photos and cannot be distinguished. Therefore, I do not adopt these records.
