The Red-faced Parrot (hapalopsittaca pyrrhops) forms superspecies with the Rusty-faced Parrots (Hapalopsittaca amazonina amazonina) and Fuertes's Parrots (Hapalopsittaca fuertesi), and all three have commonly been considered conspecific (of, or belonging to, the same species).

The Red-faced Parrot and the Fuertes's Parrot are considered monotypic ( genus consisting of only one species).
