Ara is the genus Ara in the Psittacidae; Ara macao is the scarlet macaw; South America. Psittacus is another genus of the Psittacidae; as Psittacus Erithacus, the African grey parrot. So I suggest to use the name Ara for the genus Ara en Psittacus for the genus Psittacus. Psittacus Ara is confusing.
