This is found in south-eastern Brazil, from Bahia south to Parana and Santa Catarina, and marginally into south-eastern Paraguay and north-eastern Argentina.

These birds are 9-10 cm long and weigh about 7 g.

The streak-capped antwren is found in the canopy and mid-storey of rainforests and second growths, from sea level up to an altitude of 1.250 m.

They feed on small insects and spiders.

They nest in a small pending cup-nest, but nothing else is known about their reproduction.
