(Linnaeus, 1758)

The Purple-naped Lory, Lorius domicella is a monotypic species of parrot in the Psittacidae family.[1] It is forest-dwelling endemic to the islands of Seram, Ambon, and perhaps also Haruku and Saparua, South Maluku, Indonesia. It is considered vulnerable, the main threat being from trapping for the cage-bird trade.

The top of its head is black, which fades to purple on the back of its neck. It has green wings, blue thighs, and a variable approximately transverse yellow band across the chest. It has an orange beak, dark-grey eyerings, and orange-red irises.
