Mallee Honeyeater to ID

this small honeyeater was photographed near Jabuk, S.A, in thick Mallee scrub, although the body size and colour looks similar to a Singing Honeyeater Lichenostomus virescens, its facial pattern is different, any help with an ID, i have included a second photo of an actual Singing Honeyeater so you can see this difference

Thanks Matthew

Matt, I think that’s a Purple-gaped Honeyeater.

thanks for the help with the ID, the tiny white area at the end of the black eye stripe matches images of this species on the internet

Thanks Matthew
