Distribution and habitat
It is found throughout most of the Amazon Basin, except the area east of the Rio Negro. Rarely found at the edges of the forest, it prefers being at the mid-strata level deep in the forest. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
The dwarf tyrant-manakin is dull olive above, but lights to a yellow-olive below. It has a short tail.
These birds rarely move, but produce a distinctive two-note call, which readily identifies them.
