The Common Indian Crow is a common butterfly found in South Asia. It is a glossy black butterfly with brown underside with white marks along the outer margins of the wing. The wingspan is about 8–9 cm and the body also has prominent white spots.

On hot days large numbers of these butterflies can be seen mud-puddling on wet sand. This butterfly also gathers on damaged parts of plants to forage for chemicals precursors to produce pheromones.
