The Tawny-fronted Pygmy-tyrant is distributed in Ecuador and Peru. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in dry forest and scrub up to about 2,500 metres.

Most authorities still treat it as a sub-species of Tawny-crowned Pygmy-tyrant E. meloryphus but it has been split by HBW and Birdlife International because of the distinctive head colouring, the marked wing-bars, the longer bill, the shorter wings and tail and the vocalizations.
