( Figure 25 View Figure , A–C)

Graphium glycerion kimurai Murayama, 1982  ; New Entomologist, 31 (4): 1, f. 1; TL: “ Doi Inthanon, N. Thailand ” [Doi Inthanon, Chiang Mai Province, N. Thailand]  .

Diagnostic characters: Very small in size, forewing length: male 27.0–32.0 mm (mean = 29.5 ± 1.4 mm, n = 33), female 32.0–33.0 mm (only two females examined). Both wings rather whitish. Forewing, apex acute but not produced, termen straight; veins M3 to Cu2 usually free of black scales in male, but with only trace of black in female. Hindwing, black discal band on the upperside usually completely reduced in both sexes, submarginal black short lines also reduced on the upperside in both sexes, only reaching space m1.

Distribution: C. Myanmar, N. Thailand, and C. Laos.

Phenology: Subspecies kimurai  flies from late October through the cool season, peaking at the type locality in December and again in February. Whether this is a staggered single generation with two peaks of emergence or represents two separate generations is unknown. Murayama (1982), in the original description of the taxon, also lists two paratypes from Doi Inthanon caught on 7 April 1978 and a third paratype from Thung Salengluang, N  . Thailand [= Thung Salaeng Luang National Park , Phitsanulok Province, N. Thailand] with date 10 July 1976. This is the only known record of a specimen of ssp. kimurai  captured anywhere during the rainy season. 

Host plant: Unknown, presumably a plant species belonging to family Lauraceae  .
