Range Description

Grallaricula lineifrons is known from few localities on the west slope of the Central Andes in south Colombia (east Cauca), and on the east slope of the Andes in Ecuador (west Napo, south-east Carchi, Caar and north Loja) (Lehmann et al. 1977, Ridgely and Tudor 1994). It is considered rare to locally uncommon within this range, although its cryptic habits may disguise its true status (Ridgely and Tudor 1994).
