The Broad-tipped Hermit is a Brazilian endemic found in north-east Brazil from Piauí to Bahia.

It inhabits caatinga woodland and semi-deciduous forest between 500 m and 700 m above sea level.

The "broad tips" are the white tips to the tail feathers. Upperparts are bronzy-green while underparts are brownish. The bill is decurved.

There are illustrations in HBW, Volume 5, Page 536; and Sick, Plate 45.
