The Common Crow (Euploea core) is a common butterfly found in South Asia. In India it is referred to as the Common Indian Crow, and in Australia as the Australian Crow. It belongs to the Crows and Tigers subfamily of the Nymphalidae. The Common Crow is the most common representative of its genus Euploea. They are inedible and thus mimicked by other Indian butterflies (see Batesian mimicry). In addition, the Indian species of the Euploea genus shows another kind of mimicry, Müllerian mimicry.
