Available information from the 22 known specimens of the night parrot Geopsittacus occidentalis, Gould, is presented. Comments are made on the ornithological or historical importance of some specimens and particular attention is given to the specimen collected by John McDouall Stuart in 1845 and now housed in the Merseyside County Museums, Liverpool, England.
