Common Crow butterfly (Euploea core)

English : Common Crow
Binomial Name : Euploea core 
E. core is a Common butterfly which lives in South Asia including Sri Lanka. E. core has become distasteful for predators due to the chemicals extracted from food plants consumed in their caterpillar stage. By getting the advantage of inedibility of common crow, some other species of butterflies mimic common crow to get protected from predators.
