          Abstract

          The genus Diplotaxis Kirby, 1837 is composed of around 200 species reported from Canada to Panama. The species are most abundantly found in Mexico and the United States. This study reports for the first time the presence of Diplotaxis poropyge Bates, 1887 in Colombia. The individuals are from the departments of Atlántico and Bolívar in the Caribbean region of the country. With this discovery, we update the distribution of the genus to include South America.
