Notes

The butterfly is rare in montane forest at low elevations (Alt.150m - 350m).
The populations from S.E.Thailand to Cambodia seem to be a distinct subspecies of falcipennis or a distinct species. Ek-Amnuay,[2007],2012 recorded it from 'Ranong', however that is considered to be an erroneous locality. Further taxonomic study and distributional research are needed.
