Range Description

Alipiopsitta xanthops is restricted to the cerrado biome of interior Brazil (Maranho, Piau, Tocantins, Bahia, Minas Gerais, Gois, Distrito Federal, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and formerly So Paulo) (Snyder et al. 2000) and north-central Bolivia (two records from Beni: San Joaqun, east of ro Mamor, in 1964 and a captive bird caught north of Santa Ana in the 1990s) (Remsen et al. 1986, Armona 1995, C. Yamashita in litt. 2000). It has been listed for Paraguay (Forshaw and Cooper 1989), but there is no confirmed evidence of its presence (Hayes 1995). It is occasionally locally common (Sick 1993), but mainly occurs at low densities and is now absent in many parts of its former range.
