The Black-bellied Antwren is found in north-east and central Brazil and into eastern Bolivia. It inhabits low strata in woodland and dense scrub.

The male is dark brown above with a broad white supercilium. The wings are blackish with a bold white wing-bar and the flanks are greyish although this is often hidden under the wings.

There is an illustration of a female in Ridgely & Tudor, Volume 2, Plate 20.
