(syn. Cyclopsitta Ϯ Dusky-cheeked Fig Parrot C. melanogenia suavissima) Gr. ναννος nannos dwarf; ψιττακος psittakos parrot; "There is another group of very small birds with square tails which, however, must be regarded as a very distinct genus. In this group the cere is naked, the bill projecting, the face of the lower mandible three-ridged. The wing has the first three primaries practically equal, with the fourth very little less; a wing-formula unlike either of the preceding. The tail is very short, almost hidden by the upper and under tail-coverts, the former slightly shorter, the latter equal; it has the feathers broad, not pointed, and the tail is square, not wedge-shaped, and much less than half the length of the wing. I name as type Cyclopsitta suavissima Sclater, introducing for it the generic name NANNOPSITTACUS. This includes the species guglielmi III., melanogenys and nigrifrons of the British Museum Catalogue." (Mathews 1916).
