Psephotus (grass parrots)

Wikipedia Abstract

Psephotus is a genus of five species of Australian parakeets. All species show considerable sexual dimorphism. The genus is highly likely to be polyphyletic; a molecular study analysing nuclear and mitochondrial DNA found that the red-rumped parrot was an early offshoot in a clade of several genera of broad-tailed parrot, with the other species nested deeply within.
