Notes

The butterfly is uncommon in montane forest at moderate to high elevations (Alt. 1300 - 2200m). In the 1980s, it was very common to see many of them sucking water along streams, however, recently their numbers have decreased significantly.
The markings of this taxon are highly variable. Further taxonomic study is needed, including numerous specimens from Laos and N.Vietnam.
