We extend Connes's computation of the cyclic cohomology groups of smooth algebras arising from foliations with separated graphs. We find that the characteristic classes of foliations factor through these groups. Our results also explain some results of Atiyah and Segal on orbifold Euler characteristic in the setting of cyclic homology.
