Notes

The butterfly is not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt. 10 - 700m). Both sexes visit flowers, and males frequently come to the banks of streams and puddles to suck water.
This taxon is found from Koh Tarutao, Yala and southwards. On the other hand, ssp.thronion is distributed north of Khuan Don Dist., Satun on the opposite side of Koh Tarutao.
