Swynnerton's robins are known from a few mountain ranges in eastern Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Tanzania. There are two, sometimes three, recognized subspecies, each occurring on different mountain ranges. Swynnertonia swynnertoni swynnertoni occurs on Chirinda mountain in Zimbabwe and a few smaller mountains bordering Mozambique, including Mt. Gorongosa. Swynnertonia swynnertoni rodgersi occurs in Tanzania in the Udzungwa and East Usambara Mountains. Swynnerton's robins were recently discovered in a pristine forest fragment on Mt. Mabu in Mozambique, documenting their existence in a previously unrecognized portion of their range.
