Apalis pulchra

The black-collared apalis (Oreolais pulcher) is a species of bird in the Cisticolidae family. It is found in Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, South Sudan, and Uganda.

The black-collared apalis was formerly placed in the genus Apalis but was moved to the new genus Oreolais when Apalis was shown to be polyphyletic.[2][3]
