The Stripe-necked Tody-tyrant is found in tropical Brazil south of the Amazon and in two disjunct populations in north-east Peru and in north-east Colombia.

Usually seen singly in tangles at low and mid-heights, it inhabits shrubbery beside rivers and low trees in savannahs.

Its lores and eyering are white and the iris colour ranges from white to pale yellow. Upperparts are olive with the crown greyish. The wings are plain olive with no wing bars but with yellow edges to the flight feathers. The throat is white with conspicuous dark stripes while the rest of the underparts are yellow.

There are illustrations in Ridgely & Tudor, Volume 2, Plate 35; and Sick, Plate 35.
