Diastatops is a South American genus found in the Orinoco and Amazon River basins. Eight species make up the genus. The costa of the forewings is undulate, a trait shared with only one other New World genus, Zenithoptera (Garrison, Ellenrieder, and Louton, 2006).
In this genus the wings are usually dark, and have a yellow to red, often reticulate, patch at the base of the hindwings.
Diastatops pullata is a common species first described by Linnaeus.
