The common tiger butterfly has an armory of weapons it uses to ward off predators. It also has an unpleasant taste and smell, which help repel attackers - and its colorful markings are a warning. If attacked, it can also fake its own death.
The forewing is orange, and the veins of the wing are clearly marked with dark brown. There is a white band toward the top of the wing. The outer edge of the hind wings has a black border, and a small circular white pattern is scattered on the outer edge. This species was first recorded by Seungmo Lee (1982: 44~45) in 1982 on the specimens collected in Hongdo, Jeollanam-do Province on August 12, 1981 as an unexplored species on the Korean Peninsula. There are records of observations in southern islands such as Jeju and Hongdo, but the collected populations are small. They are mainly active in August and early September. In Korea, they are observed in southern islands such as Jeju Island and Hongdo Island, and are distributed in China, Taiwan, Australia, and Western Asia.
