(syn. Psittaculirostris Ϯ Edwards's Fig Parrot P. edwardsii) Gr. κρυος kruos, κρυεος krueos frost (alluding to the appearance of the facial feathers); Mod. L. psitta parrot < Gr. ψιττακη psittakē parrot; "A series of birds classed in Cyclopsittacus have the cere feathered: in addition they are larger birds with projecting bills of narrower contour, the under-mandible with the face multi-ridged. ... As a secondary adjunct, in some cases they have developed a facial ornament of long feathers on the cheeks and ear-coverts. This group is as well marked as any genus of Parrots, and I consider it of much better value than, say, Eutelipsitta or Charmosynopsis. I therefore provide for it the new genus-name CRUOPSITTA, and name Cyclopsittacus edwardsii Oustalet as type" (Mathews 1916).
