The Altai accentor (Prunella himalayana) is a species of bird in the Prunellidae family. It is also known as the rufous-streaked accentor or Himalayan accentor. It breeds in the Altai Mountains of western mongolia; it winters in the southern Tian Shan and Himalayan ranges.


This species, along with the alpine accentor, is sometimes separated from the other accentors, into the genus Laiscopus.[2]
