Black-cheeked Lovebird (Agapornis nigrigenis) - HBW 4, p. 411
French: Inséparable à joues noires
Spanish: Inseparable Cachetón
Taxonomy: Agapornis nigrigenis W. L. Sclater, 1906, Muguzzi River, Zambia.
Sometimes treated as a subspecies of A. lilianae, from which separated by a 100 km block of unsuitable miombo (Brachystegia) woodland; also on occasion lumped in single species with A. fischeri and A. personatus; perhaps best considered to form superspecies with all three. Monotypic.
Distribution: S Zambia and formerly extreme N Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls, with old uncertain records from Namibia (Caprivi Strip).
