The 89'98 butterfly (Diaethria phlogea or Diaethria euclides phlogea)[1] is a species of butterfly of the Nymphalidae family. It is found in Colombia, South America.

Its common name is due to the 89 and 98 that appear on the undersides of its wing.

Some authors consider it to be a subspecies of Diaethria euclides.[2]
