    The species can still be found in a few places in peninsular Thailand, where pristine lowland forest still exists, including three conservation areas: Hala-Bala WS, Khao Pra-Bangkram WS, and Bang Lang NP, have been frequently recorded.

    In addition, in the recent two decades, there have been a few records from Khao-Banthad, Ton Nga Chang WS, Khlong Saeng WS, Taleban NP, and Khao Luang NP.

    Chestnut-rumped Babbler is a common and widespread babbler species of lowland forest which i am familiar through field work in the Malay Peninsula and the Greater Sundas. The species is strongly associated with the lowlands, but extend up into the lower hills (pers obs, Terengganu, Kedah, Pahang and Johor states in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah (Malaysian Borneo), and Jambi, S Sumatra, Indonesia). At many sites in Peninsular Malaysia and Sumatra, it remains one of the commoner babblers (in terms of relative abundance based on 12-15 lowland babbler species). The species also persists in logged and regenerating secondary forests at various sites. Given its wider habitat breadth (and higher abundance) across Sundaland, it is under less threat than Black-throated Babbler (S. nigricollis), and also comparatively less sensitive to habitat loss (compared to that species and many lowland babblers)
