The rusty-throated wren-babbler (Spelaeornis badeigularis) is a species of bird in the Timaliidae family. It is endemic to Northeast India.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forest. It is threatened by habitat loss. The species was first described based on a bird collected in 1947 but was not seen again until 2004, when a trip discovered it to be moderately common in a restricted area of Mishmi Hills in Arunachal Pradesh.[2]
