Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt.300m - 1100m). Males are territorial at hilltops and often settle on tree trunks, especially pine trees.
The black marginal border on the Upf of the male is highly variable. The populations from Chiang Mai to W.Thailand tend to have a very narrow border like a thread.
