This species formerly occurred on Martinique, but it has been driven to extinction by hunting. The last record dates from 1779 and it is thought to have gone Extinct by the end of the 18th century.
Amazona martinicana was described from Martinique (to France) by Labat in 1742, and by Buffon in 1779, and named by Clark based on these descriptions. Labat wrote that "the parrot is too common a bird for me to stop to give a description of it" (Clark 1905e), and so the species must have declined very rapidly to extinction in the latter half of the 18th century.
