A series of work by the first author have demonstrated that many macaque species show a visual preference for the pictures of their own species when the monkeys actively press a lever to see the pictures. We expanded this study to Sulawesi macaques kept as a pet by local people with slight modification. All seven species of Sulawesi macaques were passively exposed to a variety of colored slides of Sulawesi macaques. The experimenter recorded the duration of visual fixation onto the pictures… 
Development of the visual preference of chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) for photographs of primates: effect of social experience
TLDR
It is suggested that development of visual preference of chimpanzees is affected by social experience during infancy, as demonstrated in five captive chimpanzees raised by their mothers in a captive chimpanzee community.
Japanese macaques form a cross-modal representation of their own species in their first year of life
TLDR
It is found that monkeys recall and expect a monkey’s face upon hearing a monkey's voice and look at the monitor longer when a human face is presented after the monkey vocalization than when the same face was presented after human vocalization.
Visual preference in a human-reared agile gibbon (Hylobates agilis)
TLDR
The results suggest that, as in chimpanzees, visual preferences of agile gibbons are not genetically programmed but develop through social experience during infancy.
A Zoo-housed Chimpanzee's ( Pan troglodytes) Responses to Potentially Arousing Stimuli
TLDR
A singly-housed adult male captive chimpanzee could discriminate the behavioral categories of sex and aggression and was reinforced for selecting sexual rather than aggressive images on a touch-screen computer in a two-choice discrimination paradigm, but did not prefer female to male genitalia.
Matching based on biological categories in Orangutans (Pongo abelii) and a Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla)
TLDR
Orangutans matched images from both category levels spontaneously whereas the gorilla showed effects of learning to match intermediate level categories, showing that biological knowledge is not necessary to form natural categories at both concrete and intermediate levels.
Basic Level of Categorization in Macaca fascicularis
TLDR
It was found that monkeys categorized humans differently from monkeys, and the monkeys used physical characteristic from the photographs to create different concepts of human and monkeys.
A test of the generality of perceptually based categories found in infants: attentional differences toward natural kinds by New World monkeys.
TLDR
The evidence implies that natural categorical representation occurs at an attentional level in primates in ways similar to human infants, and is affected by recent exposure and category variability.
Species Recognition by Macaques Measured by Sensory Reinforcement
TLDR
Although the cost of mating a different species might be a little less serious in animals who reproduce more than once in their lifetime, it is still maladaptive in terms of time and energy.
Individuation and holistic processing of faces in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
These experiments show that macaques naturally display the distinguishing characteristics of face processing seen in humans and provide the first clear demonstration that holistic information guides scan paths for conspecific faces.

Visual preference for closely related species by Sulawesi macaques
TLDR
Five species of Sulawesi macaques were exposed to pictures of macaques, including all seven species living in Sulawensis island, Indonesia, and the duration of visual fixation was in general longer for pictures of the subject's own species than those of the others.
Species recognition by five macaque monkeys
TLDR
It is suggested that adult macaque monkeys visually discriminate their conspecifics from close species based on the still images of them.
Development of visual preference for closely related species by infant and juvenile macaques with restricted social experience
TLDR
Results suggest a dissociation of the determinants of this basic social preference: rhesus monkeys prefer to see their own species by nature while Japanese monkeys may learn to prefer their ownspecies.
Species discrimination and concept formation by rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta)
TLDR
The ability to recognize members of their own species and the opportunities for such learning may be an important factor preventing hybridization among the species of genusMacaca.
Species preference by infant macaques with controlled social experience

TLDR
It is suggested that infants of both Japanese and rhesus monkeys have a native tendency to prefer to see physical characteristics of rhesUS monkeys over Japanese monkeys.
External characteristics and associated developmental changes in two species of Sulawesi macaques,Macaca tonkeana andM. hecki, with special reference to hybrids and the borderland between the species
The degree of intergradation between two species of Sulawesi macaques,Macaca tonkeana andM. hecki, was studied by examining the diagnostic external characteristics of more than 100 monkeys kept as
Role of some physical characteristics in species recognition by pigtail monkeys
TLDR
The results suggest that pigtail macaques may discriminate species based not on a single characteristics but on some combination of features, and that head may be relatively important than the other features.
Morphological studies on the Sulawesi macaques I: Phyletic analysis of body color
TLDR
If the proto-Sulawesi macaques had a body color pattern similar to the livingnemestrina, darkening would have been necessary for the evolution of the Sulawesimacaques after their immigration, and it may have been acquired as an adaptation to the ground (forest floor) living nature of the sulphur-loving monkeys.
A possible reproductive isolation through a species discrimination learning in genus Macaca
TLDR
An expanded behavioral isolating mechanism through a species discrimination learning is named as the “psychological isolating mechanisms”, which may have an important meaning in the human evolution.
Estimation of the biological affinities of seven species of sulawesi macaques based on multivariate analysis of dermatoglyphic pattern types
TLDR
The author carried out morphological observations on their palmar and plantar dermatoglyphics and demonstrated that M. tonkeana was the least differentiated species, so it should be considered as the pivot point in the scheme of interspecific relationships among the Sulawesi macaques.
