Lulu's Tody-flycatcher is endemic to Peru and is distributed in a restricted area in the northern Andes of Peru between 1,850 and 2,900 metres. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in the understorey of humid forest. Only described in 2001 it is classified as Endangered due to its restricted range, small population and the threat to its habitat.

It is named after Lulu May Lloyd Von Hagen (1912-1998), a Californian socialite and dedicated supporter of research into ornithology.
