Pycnonotus simplex, commonly known as the Cream-vented bulbul is a small-sized bird measuring about 18 cm in length. Generally, this species has brown upperparts with white throat and iris. It also has brownish breast and creamy white at the center of its belly and undertail coverts. The Cream-vented bulbul can be distinguished from the other brown bulbuls by the white iris and throat (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993).

P. simplex is endemic throughout Sundaland where it distributed in primary and secondary lowland rainforest of Peninsular Malaysia. It can be seen in groups at fruiting trees or shrubs to feed on berries  (Jeyarajasingam & Pearson, 2012).
