It is endemic to China. Its natural habitats are temperate forest and subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest.

[3] Male yellow- bellied tits are very territorial, but  they have a mutual respect for their neighbors. This is called the “dear- enemy” effect, since the birds respect each other's territory and want to maintain friendships.
