The Madagascar or Grey-headed Lovebird was named agapornis canus canus by Gmelin in 1788, although the first record (painting) of the bird occurred in 1760 in M. J. Brisson's Ornithologica 1. For interests sake it is worthwhile knowing that Gmelin also referred to the Madagascan Lovebird as a. canus gave in his physical description of the bird, which accounts for the now common term: Grey-headed (gave being latin for grey 1) Lovebird.
