This is a subtly attractive honeyeater, uniformly coloured chocolate brown/grey, the head is slightly darker and the belly slightly more pale. It has a dark, slender, de-curved bill.
The male is larger than the female.
It is found in various habitats, rainforest, in tropical and eastern Australia, extending into tropical Asia. They can be seen in the gardens of Lake Barrine.
Its call is a 'chirp chirp chirp' trill and a 'tip-tip-eeee-chip'
