The Little Spiderhunter is a species of long-billed nectar feeding bird found in the moist forests of South and Southeast Asia. Unlike typical sunbirds, males and females are very similar in plumage. They are usually seen in ones or twos and are most often found near flowering plants where they obtain nectar.

The distinctive long beak set it apart from other sunbirds. Male and Female are alike except for a paler base to lower mandible in the female. Male has all black beak. They are found close to their favourite nectar bearing trees, often species of wild Musaceae or flowers in gardens.
