The species was found by Mr. Les Day on 27.Jun.2014 in Koh Samui and hitherto only this specimen has been known in Thailand.
The upperside is the same as ssp.malaya, however, the discal band on the UnH is outwardly wide greenish silvery-edged and darker ground color. Further taxonomic study is needed.
