The Peruvian Antwarbler is found in most of the western Amazon Basin, west of the lower rio Negro and the rio Madeira. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in forest borders and secondary woodland often near water or marshes. It gleans in foliage and often picks its prey from the underside of leaves.
