Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (alt.200m - 1300m) and is frequently found on top of mountains. Males form flight paths along mountain ridges, flying very fast and high, and never stoping. Occasionally it comes to streams to suck water, especially where rotting leaves are present.
Further taxonomic study is needed for continental populations.
