Notes

The butterfly is very common in montane forest at low to high elevations (alt.250m - 1800m). Males form flight paths along streams or forest edges, and frequently come to the banks of streams and puddles to suck water.
It is commonly found as far as Phetchaburi in the northern part of peninsular Thailand. However, south of Ranong, only sporadic migratory individuals have been seen and it is not considered a full-fledged habitat.
