Notes

The butterfly is locally uncommon in montane forest at moderate elevations (alt.1000m - 1300m) and is often found on the top of mountains. In flight, it mimics Euploea species (Danainae), modesta and mulciber, very well. The population in Ranong area seems different. Further taxonomic study is needed.
