Eumyias is a genus of birds in the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae.

It contains the following species:[1]

Dull-blue flycatcher (Eumyias sordidus)
Verditer flycatcher (Eumyias thalassinus)
Turquoise flycatcher (Eumyias panayensis)
Nilgiri flycatcher (Eumyias albicaudatus)
Indigo flycatcher (Eumyias indigo)
Buru jungle flycatcher (Eumyias additus)

The Buru jungle flycatcher was previously placed in the genus Rhinomyias but was moved to Eumyias when a 2010 molecular phylogenetic study found that Rhinomyias was polyphyletic.[2]
