Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in open land and secondary forest at low elevations (alt.10m - 50m). Males are territorial on undergrowth and shrubs around forest edges at 9:30 - 11:00.
The population from Ranong has smaller orange tornal markings, and some of them are replaced with white ones. Further taxonomic study is needed.
