Until recently, there were only 2 species of caique: the Black-headed and the White-bellied. The White-bellied, also called White-breasted and Apricot-headed, had three subspecies: the Green-thighed Caique (nominal, shown here), the Yellow-thighed p.l. xanthomeria, and the Yellow-tailed p.l. xanthurus, (as yellow-thighed with yellow upper tail). These have now been split into separate full species.
