Pyrilia pyrilia

The Saffron-headed Parrot is a species of parrot in the family Psittacidae. It was previously placed in the genus Pionopsitta, but moved out, as it is not as close to the type species Pionopsitta pileata as it was believed. It was briefly placed in Gypopsitta, but this is a junior synonym of Pyrilia and thus the Saffron-headed Parrot is now placed in the latter genus.

The Pyrilia pyrilia is classified as Near Threatened (NT), is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.
