Pearly Parakeet

Pyrrhura lepida (Wagler, 1832)

The Pearly Parakeet (Pyrrhura lepida), more commonly known as the Pearly Conure in aviculture, is a species of parrot that is endemic to east Amazonian forests in Brazil. Its taxonomic history is potentially confusing. It was formerly known as Pyrrhura perlata, but following a review it was discovered that the type specimen, long believed to belong to this species, actually was a juvenile of the closely related Crimson-bellied Parakeet. Consequently, P. perlata was transferred to that species, while the next name in line for the Pearly Parakeet, P. lepida, became its valid scientific name. While the Pearly Parakeet remains locally fairly common, it has suffered due to extensive habitat destruction, especially in the eastern part of its range where the subspecies coerulescens may be approaching extinction.
