The different subspecies of Spix's Warbling-Antbird replace one another in an eastwards progression across southern Amazonia, usually being separated from the adjoining taxon by a major south-bank tributary of the Amazon. Spix’s Warbling-Antbird ranges from the lower Rio Madeira east to the Rio Tocantins, and is a Brazilian endemic. Its range abuts that of Peruvian Warbling-Antbird (Hypocnemis peruviana) to the west, which species occurs on the opposite bank of the Rio Madeira, and Rondonia Warbling-Antbird (Hypocnemis ochrogyna) to the southwest. No differences in general behavior have been reported between it and the other members of the complex.
