Related Species

Amazona xantholora is very similar to Amazona albifrons (White-fronted Parrot), and these two species usually are listed side by side in linear classifications, implying a close relationship between the two. Recent molecular phylogenies of the genus Amazona (Ottens-Wainwright et al. 2004, Russello and Amato 2004), did not include A. xantholora, however, due to a lack of samples.
