Todd's antwren (Herpsilochmus stictocephalus) is a species of antwren in the family Thamnophilidae. It is found in the Guiana Shield (eastern Venezuela to Amapá). Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is a common bird in mixed species flocks, but usually restricts itself to the forest canopy. Like many antwrens it is heard more often than it is seen. It looks very similar to the Spot-tailed antwren, which it overlaps with in range; and the two are easiest distinguished by their songs.
