Notes

In Betong Dist., Yala, southernmost part of Thailand, most of the individuals are ssp.malayana. The butterfly is very common everywhere at low to moderate elevations (Alt. 50 - 700m). The population in Than To Dist., Yala is generally ssp.nina, however, individuals similar to ssp.malayana also occur rarely. It seems to be a transition zone of both subspecies.
