This was translated from French using this sites translator. The original site is here. Warning it is in French though it has two paintings of these Parakeets. Worth a look.
Parakeet of Tahiti, Cyanoramphus zelandicus (Latham, 1790), A' has taevao. 30-35 cm (tail: 15 cm). The parakeet of Tahiti is known only by engravings and several sp?men naturalis?d?s?au mus?de Liverpool and with the National Museum of Natural History?aris. The last individual of this esp? has? collect?n 1844. Pr?nte only in the for? vall? of Tahiti, O? its strong cry got along far. One is unaware of his behavior, his practices of reproduction, his food.
Parakeet of Raiatea, Cynoramphus ulietanus (Gmelin, 1788). Is the parakeet of Raiatea known only by two sp?mens naturalis? trouv??aiatea in 1774 at the time of the second exp?tion of Cook d?s?en collection in British Museum of London and Leverian Museum of Vienna.
