Dusky conure x Peach-fronted conure

Was sold as a green-cheek and dusky conure hybrid, but the bird’s appearance does not support this – no green cheek collar feathers are present and the slight orange crown wouldn’t have been possible. It was determined to be a dusky and peach-fronted conure hybrid due to the dark face, green body with a lighter belly, larger eye ring (dusky features), slight orange above the beak (peach-fronted), as well as a fully dark beak. A hybrid with a half-moon conure or brown-throated conure would have made the beak somewhat mixed-color, so these species were ruled out.
