The Crimson-bellied Conure or Crimson-bellied Parakeet (Pyrrhura perlata) – more commonly known as the Crimson-bellied ) – is also often referred to as “Pearly Conure” resulting in confusion with the Pyrrhura lepida lepida – the true Pearly Conure. The reason for this confusion is that the scientific name ” Pyrrhura perlata” is now applied to Crimson-bellied Parakeet.
In 1824, Spix misidentified skins of immature birds belonging to the former species “Pyrrhura rhodogaster” necessitating reclassification. Recent field studies have confirmed a conspecific relationship (of, or belonging to, the same species) between Pyrrhura rhodogaster and Pyrrhura perlata, thus they are classified here together as one species.
The Crimson-bellied Conure forms a parapatric species pair with the Pearly Conure (Pyrrhura lepida), with which the Crimson-bellied Conure is sometimes considered conspecific (of, or belonging to, the same species)..
The plumage is mainly green with a narrow reddish-brown frontal band.

The lores (the regions between the eyes and bill on the side of a bird’s head) and cheeks yellowish-green becoming pale blue on lower cheeks. The ear coverts (feathers covering the ears) are off-white / cream-colored. The brown breast is barred off-white and dark brown. They have a brownish-red tail with a green base.
