Euler's Flycatcher (Lathrotriccus euleri (Cabanis)) is one of only two species in the genus, and occurs nearly all over the tropical South America (east of the Andes).

The endemic subspecies of Grenada was described in the year 1887 from a single, juvenile specimen (as Blacicus flaviventris (Lawrence)). It is now considered extinct, whereby the reasons for this seem to be unnown.
