Pyrrhura Conures Pyrrhura ---------

Pyrrhura conures are colourful parrots full of personality
Crimson-bellied Conure
Crimson-bellied Conure
The Crimson-bellied Conure, Pyrrhura perlata perlata (prev. Pyrrhura rhodogaster), is native to Brazil and Bolivia.

Crimson-bellied Conure
The Crimson-bellied Conure has a "green cheek," a "blue throat," a "grey breast" and is somewhat "white-eared" but those are names of other conure species.
Pearly Conure
Pearly Conure
The Pearly Conure, Pyrrhura lepida, from Brazil (used to be Pyrrhura perlata until it was found that the type specimen was actually a young Crimson-bellied, so, following taxonomic rules, the name "perlata" was transferred to the Crimson-bellied and the Pearly Conure became lepida species). Some refer to it as subspecies Pyrrhura perlata lepida, but since it has its own subspecies, it is usually given full species status as Pyrrhura lepida.
Miritiba Pearly Conure
Miritiba Pearly Conure
Miritiba Pearly Conure, Pyrrhura lepida coerulescens, is native to a small region of coastal Brazil (Maranhao state) and nearing extinction in the wild. Some sources refer to it as Pyrrhura perlata coerulescens under the assumption mentioned above that the Pearly Conure itself is a subspecies of the Crimson-bellied.
Painted Conure The Painted Conure, Pyrrhura picta, is native to northern South America. There are several subspecies. Some other former subspecies have been reclassified as full species in recent years.
Maroon-tailed Conure The Maroon-tailed Conure, Pyrrhura melanura, is native to north and northwest South America. The upper side of the tail is green then maroon and the underside is dark. Many pyrrhura conures have maroon tails.
White-eared Conure
Maroon-faced Conure
The White-eared Conure, Pyrrhura leucotis, also called Maroon-faced Parakeet, is native to Brazil.
Brazilian Grey-breasted Conures
Maroon-faced Conure
Illustrated is the Brazilian Grey-breasted subspecies, Pyrrhura leucotis griseipectus. Another subspecies, Emma's Conure (P. l. emma) from Venezuela with a blue crown, is confusingly also classed by some as a subspecies of the Painted Conure (see above) , which itself used to be thought a subspecies of the Maroon-faced/White-eared.
Rose-fronted Conure
Rose-fronted Conure
The Rose-fronted Conure, Pyrrhura roseifrons, (sometimes called Red-crowned Parakeet leading to confusion with the New Zealand Kakariki of that name), comes from the western Amazon (Peru/Ecuador/Bolivia/Brazil). Used to be thought a subspecies of the Painted Conure above but is now classed as a separate species.
