DEFINITIONS

AGAPORNIS
(Psittacidae; Black-collared Lovebird A. swindernianus) Gr. αγαπη agapē, αγαπης agapēs  love; ορνις ornis, ορνιθος ornithos  bird; the substantive English name ‘lovebird’ reflects the strong pair bond and sociable nature of these small parrots; "Others have the bill powerful and thick, with the upper mandible strongly toothed; the wings long, and the tail short, and nearly even. To this group, the Psittacus Swinderianus of Kuhl, and the Psittacus Malaccensis, Lath., appear to belong. For the present, the title of Agapornis is given to them, though it is not unlikely that a farther division may be required, when their habits and economy are better known. The only illustration we can give of these diminutive Parrots is that of  SWINDERN'S LOVE-BIRD.  Agapornis Swinderianus." (Selby 1836); "Agapornis Selby, Nat. Libr., Parrots, 1836, p. 117.  Type, by subsequent designation, Psittacus swindernianus Kuhl. (G. R. Gray, List Gen. Bds., 1840, p. 53.)" (Peters, 1937, III, p. 254).
Synon. Amoravis, Donkorella, Poliopsitta, Psittacula.
