- n. The specific name of a lory of the Moluccas, Lorius domicella (Linnæus), adopted by some authors as the genus name instead of the barbarous word Lorius. In some usages it is nearly conterminous with the subfamily Lorinæ, including Eos, Coriphilus, etc.
“The remaining four species are found nowhere else: the endangered black-chinned monarch (Monarcha boanensis) and vulnerable salmon-crested cockatoo (Cacatua moluccensis), purple-naped lory (Lorius domicella), and lazuli kingfisher (Todirhamphus lazuli).”
“Papuan lories (Lorius domicella), four other lories and parroquets,”
