The Grallaria rufula complex is currently considered to consist of 2 species, G. rufula (Rufous Antpitta) and G. blakei (Chestnut Antpitta). However, it has been suggested that the complex, populations of which occur in humid montane forests from Venezuela to Bolivia, comprises a suite of vocally distinct yet morphologically cryptic (Twins) species.

This species lives only in the central Andes in Colombia, between 1800 and 3100m. It is located in the Cordillera Central in the volcanic massif Ruiz-Tolima in the departments of Caldas, Risaralda, Quindío and Tolima.
