The Ash-browed Spinetail is distributed on the eastern slope of the Andes from Colombia through Ecuador and Peru to central Bolivia. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in forest at between 800 and 2,000 metres where it tends to be inconspicuous as it forages along moss-covered branches.

It is classified as Vulnerable since it is relatively uncommon and its Amazonian habitat is threatened with destruction. It is relatively small with chestnut crown and shoulders, plain underparts and fairly thin ash-coloured eyebrow.

Its song is described as a bouncing ball.
