Lathrotriccus W. Lanyon & S. Lanyon, 1986
The Auk 103 p.347
Lathrotriccus is a small genus of passerine birds in the tyrant flycatcher family. They breed in tropical South America, including, for one species, the islands of Trinidad and formerly also Grenada.
They closely resembles the Empidonax flycatchers in appearance, and were formerly placed in that genus, but differ anatomically and biochemically.
There are only two known species in the genus:
* Euler's Flycatcher, Lathrotriccus euleri
These are birds of fairly open habitats such as open woods and arid scrub. They are inconspicuous birds, tending to keep to undergrowth perches from which they sally forth to catch insects.
