The Opal-rumped Tanager is distributed throughout much of the Amazon Basin and into the Guyanas. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in the canopy of lowland forest and on the eastern foothills of the Andes up to about 600 metres.

It is often found with the similar Opal-crowned Tanager T. callophrys but this latter species has an opal forecrown and lacks rufous on the belly (which is difficult to see in this photo.)
