Thripophaga macroura occurs in the Atlantic forest region of south-east Brazil, from Bahia south of Salvador through east Minas Gerais to Espírito Santo and north Rio de Janeiro. This has recently been discovered at a number of new locations. Nevertheless it has a small range (and presumably a small population) and remaining habitat is fragmented and continuing to decline in quality (Collar et al. 1992), so it consequently qualifies as Vulnerable.
