The Cinnamon-vented Piha is a Brazilian endemic being restricted to the south-east of Brazil from southern Bahia to Santa Catarina. It is also classified as Near Threatened by Birdlife International because the small, fragmented population is vulnerable to the disappearance of its Atlantic Rain Forest habitat.

It is similar to the Screaming Piha Lipaugus vociferans but it is larger and is browny-grey in colour with browner wings and tail. The breast and crown have a scaled effect. Like the Screaming Piha it has a very loud voice but with a very different song.
