There are four types of four flamingo species in the Americas and two species in Afro-Asia.

The Greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) and the Lesser flamingo (Phoeniconaias minor) hail from the Afro-Asia area.

Conversely, the Chilean flamingo (Phoenicopterus chilensis), James’s flamingo (Phoenicoparrus jamesi), Andean flamingo (Phoenicoparrus andinus), and the American flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber) are from the Americas.
