The scarlet-fronted parakeet (Psittacara wagleri), also known as the scarlet-fronted conure or Wagler's conure, is a long-tailed South American species of parrot. It is found in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and especially high-altitude shrubland and forest; it is also known to visit heavily degraded former forest.

The Cordilleran parakeet was considered conspecific.
