Arachnothera longirostra

Description:

During a rainforest thunderstorm I had the pleasure of watching this little spiderhunter feeding from a wild ginger flower for a few minutes in a sheltered spot.

Yes, that looks more like it. I'd seen some species with a smaller bill, and presumed the bill on the little spiderhunter was shorter.
