No worries Ashish :-) I think the reason may be to help differentiate it from the equally common (in India) Plain Tiger (Danaus chrysippus)...

Hmmm... Daniele just want to tell you...while doing a nature trail along with my one friend educated in Jim Corbett... asked me stop call it Common Tiger. There must be some reason. I find there is nothing wrong in your suggestion. I like to follow my fellow Biologists from India.

Thanks for the precision Ashish. In Australia, where I used to live and where I first saw this butterfly, it is commonly called the Orange Tiger.

Wiki says but my all Biologists friends told me they stopped to call it calling Common. Its Striped Tiger. I have Isaac Kehimkar's book in my hands... published by BNHS.

Common Tiger and Striped Tiger are both accepted common names Ashish. See Wiki link.
