Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt. 250m - 900m) with a single generation in a year. In flight, it mimics Euploea species (Danainae), modesta, algea and sylvester, very well. Markings are rather variable, and individuals without the white submarginal spots on the hindwings are found very occasionally.
