The Butterfly Effect-3

Took this picture inside the premises of the White Tiger Forest Lodge of Bandhavgarh National Park, India.

This particular butterfly is called the Common Indian Crow Butterfly. It is from the Nymphalidae group, The Brush-footed Butterflies. Its Scientific Name is Euploea core.
The Common Crow is a glossy chocolate brown butterfly with two sets of white spots along its wing margins.
Within the genus Euploea itself there are another two almost same looking butterflies, the Double Branded Crow and the Brown King Crow. The Malabar Raven, Common Mime(clytia) and the female Great Eggfly also quite similar to this butterfly.
