Overview

Distribution

Range Description

Pyrrhura devillei occurs in southern Brazil (Mato Grosso do Sul), northern Paraguay (north-western Concepción and south-eastern Alto Paraguay) and south-east Bolivia. In Brazil it is only known from Mato Grosso do Sul where it is restricted to the serras of Bodoquena and Maracajú, in the ecotone between the planalto and the Pantanal lowlands, and along the Taboco river in the municipality of Aquidauana. It has a very restricted range in Paraguay, from where recent records are limited to the gallery forest along the río Apa.

Justification
This species is suspected to be declining moderately rapidly because its habitat is increasingly fragmented and suffering losses and degradation owing to conversion for agriculture and charcoal production. It is now believed to approach the threshold for classification as Vulnerable and has therefore been uplisted to Near Threatened; further information on its range, population size and trends may lead to a further change of status.

Threats

Major Threats
Its range in Brazil has suffered extensive forest loss and degradation through agricultural expansion and charcoal production. The forests of northern Concepción and those in the easternmost Paraguayan Chaco are coming under increasing pressure and have seen considerable deforestation in the past 10 years (R. Clay in litt. 2009). Apparent hybridisation with P. frontalis has been observed on the río Apa (R. Clay in litt. 2009). Trade is apparently minimal (del Hoyo et al. 1997).

Conservation Actions Proposed
Clarify extent of hybridisation with P. frontalis and its taxonomic position. Carry out surveys across the historic range and monitor populations to obtain accurate estimates of range and population size and rates of decline.

Blaze-winged parakeet

The blaze-winged parakeet (Pyrrhura devillei), more commonly known as the blaze-winged conure in aviculture, is a species of parrot found in wooded habitats in the Pantanal-region of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. It remains locally fairly common, but has suffered due to extensive habitat destruction within its relatively small range, and has therefore been uplisted to near-threatened by BirdLife International in 2009. The type specimen is labelled Bolivia, but due to shifting borders it is now believed to be from Paraguay. It has often been considered a subspecies of the maroon-bellied parakeet based on apparent hybrids from Paraguay, but – as far as known – the two generally maintain their integrity, and are recent sources are undecided on whether to treat them as one species or two. They resemble each other, but the blaze-winged parakeet has a dusky crown and red "shoulder" and underwing coverts.
