Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt.300m - 700m).
Kimura et al.,2014 recorded Arhopala avathina from Yala. However the figured specimen is considered to be Arhopala avatha. I would like to delete Arhopala avathina from the list until a reliable specimen is found.
