|A male Double-eyed Fig-Parrot|
Holyoak (1970a) points out that Opopsitta [Cyclopsitta] and Psittaculirostris stand apart from other parrots having the entoglossum (a hyoid bone) deeply grooved and in having the processes of the parahyoid bone only narrowly jointed and not projected forward. He also stated that the two genera should not be separated.
They are found in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and tropical Australia.
The two species were formerly placed in the genus Opopsitta.
It contains two species:
- Orange-breasted Fig-Parrot, (Cyclopsitta gulielmitertii)
- Double-eyed Fig-Parrot, (Cyclopsitta diophthalma)
