Phlaocyon latidens is an extinct species of the genus Phlaocyon, belonging to the subfamily Borophaginae and tribe Phlaocyonini, a canid which inhabited northwestern North America from the Late Oligocene to Miocene living 33.3—20.6 mya and existed for approximately .
Phlaocyon latidens was originally named Galecynus latidens by Cope 1881. It was recombined as Cynodictis latidens by Scott 1898; it was recombined as Nothocyon latidens by Matthew 1899, Merriam (1906), Matthew 1907, Peterson 1907, Thorpe (1922), Hall and Martin (1930), Macdonald (1963) and Macdonald (1970); it was recombined as Cormocyon latidens by Wang and Fremd (1994); it was recombined as Phlaocyon latidens by Wang, Tedford & Taylor 1999.
