Broad-tailed Parrots

The broad-tailed parrots (Platycercini, sometimes considered a subfamily: Platycercinae) are small to medium in size parrots.

They are native to Australasia, Australia in particular, but also New Zealand, New Caledonia, and nearby islands..

 

TRIBE PLATYCERCINI

  • Genus Northiella - often included in Psephotus

The following genera are traditionally placed in this tribe, but this inclusion is either incorrect (Budgerigar) or at least doubtful based on by molecular studies.

  • Genus Melopsittacus
  • Genus Neopsephotus - sometimes included in Neophema
