The Common Tiger ( Danaus genutia ) is a butterfly found in India that belongs to the Crows and Tigers, that is, the Danaid group of the Brush-footed family. The Common Tiger has the same coloration as the Plain Tiger and indeed, the white and orange forms also occur as in the Plain Tiger.  The veins of this species are strongly marked with black and in the field, the Common Tiger may occasionally be mistaken for the Black Veined Tiger.  The white form, form-intermedius , has white hindwings with the border tinged with orange.  The form-genutia has the hindwings coloured as in the forewings.  The Common Tiger is attracted to the dried plants of Heliotropium indicum.
