Notes

The butterfly is locally not rare in montane forest at low to moderate elevations (Alt. 450m - 700m).
I follow Wei et al.,2017 and treat the population of Singapore, W.Malaysia to P.Thailand as ssp.lutescens provisionally, however I consider Malaysian population seems to be different from Borneo. The classification and relationship of these subspecies should be restudied in future.
