Quite uncommon species, except the islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, where is more easy to spot it. For some time the female of this species were considered a different species, named Hasora maevis and quite rare. Only after a study of first stages and DNA has been determined that actually Hasora maevis was the female of Hasora leucospila, that is sexual dimorphic.
