A tiny bird of forest canopy from the lowlands to the mid-mountains in the west of New Guinea. Medium gray upperparts, pale gray underparts to whitish belly, and a whitish throat. Male has a bright red chest patch and a yellowish tinge to the head. Female has a broad pale stripe from the bill down to the center of the chest. Similar in size to a gerygone or Pygmy Longbill, but typical flowerpecker behaviour of flying vocally between the treetops. Voice, a buzzing “jig!” call, given regularly.
