The slender-footed tyrannulet (Zimmerius gracilipes) is a species of bird in the family Tyrannidae, the tyrant flycatchers. It is found in humid forests of the west Amazon Basin in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. Until recently, it included the Guianan tyrannulet as a subspecies.
