The orange-bellied manakin (Lepidothrix suavissima), also known as the tepui manakin,[2] is a species of bird in the Pipridae family. It resembles and is closely related to the white-fronted manakin (L. serena), and the two were formerly considered conspecific.

It is, as suggested by its alternative common name, restricted to humid forest growing on the tepuis in southern Venezuela, far northern Brazil, and central Guyana.
