Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.700m - 1200m). Males are frequently territorial on trees at hilltops.
Pinratana,1979 recorded it from Chiang Mai, however it is considered to be a misidentification or erroneous locality. Further distributional research is needed.
