Complicated situation in which types of name perlata have proved to be immatures of form long known as P. rhodogaster, which name thus becomes a junior synonym of P. perlata; as a consequence, form (Pearly Parakeet) hitherto known as P. perlata assumes next oldest name, P. lepida. These two, which form a parapatric species-pair, are sometimes considered conspecific; recent molecular phylogeny indicated that their closest relatives are P. frontalis and P. molinae#R. Monotypic.
