Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt.30m - 700m). Males are territorial on trees.
The population in Chanthaburi, S.E.Thailand, has a broader black marginal band on the UpF and the ground color of the upperside is more brilliant blue as Kimura et al,2014 pointed out. Further taxonomic study is needed.
