Conuropsis fratercula



Are there any diagnostic characters relating this Miocene taxon to Carolina Parakeet (Conuropsis carolinensis)?

I've allways been under the impression that it was only placed in Conuropsis on geographical (and thus very dubious) grounds.

Also, is this genus itself (Conuropsis) justified? To me, Carolina Parakeets greatly resemble the 'gold-and-yellow' Aratinga species (solstitialis,jendaya,...).

Any help would be appreciated.
