This lowland species ranges through Southern Central America and Northern South America and prefers humid tropical forest like that found around the Tinamu Lodge (below 5,000 feet or 1,700m). They are generally an understory species and - much like antbirds - often follow and feed on ant swarms. This was my one look at this species on my 2019 trip, so I was happy to get something of it, even if the perch is less than interesting. It would have been nice to have a bt more depth-of-field across the tail, but I didn't have much usable light for that. I was just happy to get the appropriate head turn.
