The monotypic Eclectus genus include a single species: Eclectus Parrot. It is a large parrot native to several islands ranging from the northern Moluccas to Solomon Islands.

The male and female Eclectus Parrot have different colours, so it is easy to mistake the male and female for two different species. The male is bright emerald green and the female is deep red and purple; it is the most sexually dimorphic of all parrot species.
