"Anodorhynchus" is a genus of large macaws. It contains three species, and, in addition, a hypothetical extinct species extinct has been postulated based on very little evidence. At about 100 cm (39 in) in length the Hyacinth Macaw is the longest parrot in the world.


There are three well established species of the genus, "Anodorhynchus", Spix 1824:cite web | url = |title = Zoological Nomenclature Resource: Psittaciformes (Version 9.004) |date =2008-07-05 |publisher = ]

*Glaucous Macaw, "Anodorhynchus glaucus", (Vieillot) 1816 (probably extinct)
*Hyacinth Macaw, "Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus", (Latham) 1790
*Lear's Macaw or Indigo Macaw, "Anodorhynchus leari", Bonaparte 1856

Hypothetical extinct species

Oné Couli, "Anodorhynchus purpurascens", was described by Rothschild and featured in his book, "Extinct Birds" published in 1907, but there is very little evidence to support it as separate species. Rothchild named the species because violet macaws were said to have inhabited the island of Guadeloupe; however, they were probably imported Hyacinth Macaws from the mainland of South America.cite book |title = Extinct Birds |pages = p. 148–9 |first = Errol |last = Fuller | year = 1987| publisher = Penguin Books (England) |isbn = 0670817972]


The three well established species are monotypic:
