Range Description

Nannopsittaca dachilleae is very local in the west Amazon basin of south-east and south Peru (Ucayali and Madre de Dios) and north-west Bolivia (La Paz), and west Brazil (Acre) (Parker et al. 1991, Collar 1997a, Juniper and Parr 1998, Whitney and Oren 2001). There are conflicting reports over its abundance, with some sources stating that it is locally common to very common (Juniper and Parr 1998, Forshaw 2006), and more recent observations suggesting that it is patchy in distribution and uncommon or very uncommon wherever it occurs (J. Gilardi in litt. 2010); further study is required.
