Typical black, white, and gray batis. Note the broad black chest band and the white slash across the wing. The eye is yellow in males and orange in females. Found in montane forest, usually in pairs in the mid-story. The vocalizations include high piping notes by the male that are often accompanied by a low bleating from the female. Similar to Ituri Batis but found at higher elevations, and separated by its broader black band across the breast.
