The slender-billed greenbul (Stelgidillas gracilirostris) is a species in the monotypic genus Stelgidillas of the bulbul family of passerine birds. It is found in western and central Africa. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forest, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest, and subtropical or tropical moist montane forest.
Taxonomy and systematics
The slender-billed greenbul was originally described in the genus Andropadus and was re-classified to the genus Stelgidillas in 2010. Alternatively, some authorities classify the slender-billed greenbul in the genus Pycnonotus. Alternate names for the slender-billed greenbul include the Cameroon sombre greenbul and Cameroon greenbul. The latter name should not be confused with the species of the same name, Arizelocichla montana.
Formerly, some authorities also considered the following species (or subspecies) as species within the genus Stelgidillas:
- Congo slender-billed greenbul (S. g. gracilirostris) - Strickland, 1844: Found from Senegal and Guinea-Bissau to southern Sudan, western Kenya, western Tanzania, south-central Democratic Republic Congo and north-western Angola
- Kikuyu slender-billed greenbul (S. g. percivali) - (Neumann, 1903): Found in central Kenya
