The Red-banded Fruiteater (Pipreola whitelyi) is restricted to humid highland forest areas on the Tepuis (mountain) in southeastern Venezuela and western Guyana. Its existence remains unconfirmed from adjacent parts of northern Brazil, although it is likely to occur there as well.


Description:

The males' underparts are primarily grey. The male also has a conspicuous red pectoral collar, from which this species derived its common name.
