Cyclopsitta is a genus of parrot in the family Psittaculidae. It contains two species: \n* Orange-breasted fig parrot (Cyclopsitta gulielmitertii) \n* Double-eyed fig parrot (Cyclopsitta diophthalma) The genus name Cyclopsitta is a combination of the Greek name of the mythical Cyclops (a race of one-eyed Sicilian giants, whose name is a combination of the Greek word kuklos, meaning "circle" and ōps, meaning "eye"), and the modern Latin psitta, meaning "parrot".
