Bothriopsis bilineata is found in the South American neotropics. Other highly populated regions include equatorial forests of Venezuela, Guyana, French Guiana, and Suriname. It is most abundant in southwest South America, in Parque Nacional. Bothriopsis bilineata has been documented as far south as Jacarepagua, which is located within the city limits of Rio de Janeiro. However, the species was removed from Jacarepagua in and is now considered rare in that region. Two-striped forest-pitvipers are present only in forested habitats.
