The Silvery-throated Spinetail is distributed in a limited area, Boyacá and Cundinamarca, of the eastern Andes of Colombia. See the distribution map at NatureServe. Within this restricted area it is fairly common in forest and woodland clearings mainly between 2,100 and 3,200 metres.

It does not have a particularly silver throat and is superficially quite similar to Azara's Spinetail S. azarae though the tail is grey-brown rather than rufous.

Its song is a fast series of chattering notes dropping in pitch.
