Apalis ruwenzorii

The Rwenzori apalis or collared apalis (Oreolais ruwenzorii) is a species of bird in the Cisticolidae family. It is found in Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

The Rwenzori 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]
