Oreolais ruwenzorii

The Ruwenzori apalis or collared apalis (Apalis ruwenzorii) is a species of bird in the Cisticolidae family. Nguembock et al. (2008) moved species to a new genus, Oreolais, however most taxonomists continue to place the bird in Apalis.

It is found in Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
