The wagtail-tyrants are a genus, Stigmatura, of small South American birds in the Tyrannidae family. They are yellow below and have long black-and-white tails that frequently are held cocked.


The two described species are sometimes split into two species each (i.e., resulting in a total of four species). Additionally, a possibly undescribed species is found in the Orinoco Basin in Venezuela.[1]
