The Red-tailed Minla is distributed from central Nepal eastwards into central and southern China and south into Myanmar and Indochina.

It is found in a variety of forest types but most often in oak or rhododendron. In Bhutan it is mainly between 1,800 and 3,200 metres.

It is a small babbler with a black crown and broad eyestripe separated by a white supercilium with a white throat below. There is a red panel on the wings and the edge of the tail is also red. The mantle is maroon-brown on the male and olive-brown on the female.
