Abstract
The purpose of this application, under Articles 78.1, 80.2.2 and 81.2.2 of the Code, is to conserve current usage of the well-established genus-group name Touit G.R. Gray, 1855 for a genus of South American parrotlets by suppression of the earlier but little-used, taxonomically ambiguous name Pyrrhulopsis Reichenbach, 1850. This course of action would also help to confirm the validity of the widely used genus-group name Prosopeia Bonaparte, 1854 for the Fijian shining parrots which has also been replaced by Pyrrhulopsis at times owing to differing interpretations of its meaning.
