Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at moderate elevations (Alt.500m - 1400m). Males are territorial on trees.
The populations from Nakhon Nayok to S.E.Thailand are similar to ssp.lisides. However populations from N.Thailand and S.E.Thailand are isolated by ssp.madaura of C.Thailand. I provisionally regard the taxon from S.E.Thailand as the nominotypical subspecies. Further taxonomic study is needed.
