Other common names: Puerto Rican Pewee (blancoi); St Lucia Pewee (latirostris)

Taxonomy: Myiobius latirostris J. Verreaux, 1866, St Lucia, Lesser Antilles.
Races sometimes treated as three separate species; nominate, blancoi and brunneicapillus have occasionally been referred to as, respectively, oberi, portoricensis and latirostris, presumably in error. Three subspecies recognized.

Subspecies and Distribution:

  • blancoi (Cabanis, 1875) - Puerto Rico.
  • brunneicapillus (Lawrence, 1878) - Guadeloupe, Dominica and Martinique.
  • latirostris (J. Verreaux, 1866) - St Lucia.
