Lipaugus weberi is confined to a small area of forest (c.800 km2) on the northern slope of the Central Andes in Colombia (Cuervo et al. 2001), where it is known from at least five locations (Renjifo et al. 2002), although this is likely to increase with the consideration of survey results published by Cuervo et al. (2008). The area lies between the Porce and NechÃ river valleys, where it is presently known from four localities in the Municipality of AnorÃ (Cuervo et al. 2001). The species is locally common at the known localities in AnorÃ, especially between 1,600 and 1,750 m (Cuervo et al. 2001, Renjifo et al. 2002). It is much less common near Amalfi, presumably because the forests in this area have been subjected to exploitation for a longer period of time (Renjifo et al. 2002).
