The Eupsittula genus include five South and Middle American species. They were previously included in the Aratinga genus but was reclassified in 2013.

In aviculture they are also known as Conures – a term that includes several genera.

The greater primary coverts are mostly green with some blue on the inner primary coverts (on E. cactorum bluish green). The tail is green.
