The Plain Greenbul is distributed in Equatorial Africa from Sierra Leone to Lake Victoria. It is found in forest where it is usually skulking around mid-levels.

It is a fairly featureless greenbul, olivaceous-brown with paler underparts, a hint of ginger on the flanks and a reddish-brown tail. It has a narrow, broken white eyering.

The voice is a better diagnostic but this is complicated by the fact that the two sub-species have different voices to the extent that some authorities think they might constitute two species.
