Family : Nymphalidae
SubFamily : Danainae
Common Name : Common Tiger
Forms : f. intermedius, f. genutia

The Common Tiger has the same colouration 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 butterfly is not commonly encountered in Singapore, but is often seen in the urban and sub-urban areas where it may find its host plant, the creeper-weed Raphistemma pulchellum, growing in a patch of undeveloped land. The Common Tiger is attracted to the dried plants of Heliotropium indicum.
