Range Description

Psittacaralabati is not known from any specimens, but was well described by Labat in 1724 from Guadeloupe (to France) (Clark 1905b). Little is known of the species (Marien and Koopman 1955), but it must have declined to extinction in the second half of the 18th century. A suggestion that parakeets on Guadeloupe may have been escaped Cuban Parakeet Aratinga euops (Forshaw and Cooper 1989) is unlikely because the birds were not noted to have any red in the wing (Marien and Koopman 1955), unlike A. euops (Forshaw and Cooper 1989).
