Notes

The butterfly is locally common in montane forest at high elevations (Alt.1600m - 2500m) and is frequently found on hilltops. Males are territorial on shrubs near the forest edge.
Kimura et al.,2014 pointed out, examples of Doi Inthanon are different from populations in Fang district. However, I consider it is not remarkable difference, therefore I treat it as ssp.learmondi. And only one example is known from Nan province, N.Thailand. Although I treat as this taxon provisionally, further taxonomic and distribution studies are needed.
