Capuchin monkey behavior has been the focus of increasing numbers of captive and field studies in recent years, clarifying behavioral and ecological differences between the two morphological types: the gracile and the robust capuchins (also referred to as untufted and tufted). Studies have tended to focus on the gracile species Cebus capucinus (fewer data are available for C. albifrons, C. olivaceus, and C. kaapori) and on Cebus apella, a name that has encompassed all of the robust capuchins… Expand
The effects of ecology and evolutionary history on robust capuchin morphological diversity.
TLDR
The authors' analyses suggest that S. libidinosus has the most derived craniofacial and postcranial features, indicative of inhabiting a more terrestrial niche that includes a dependence on tool use for the extraction of imbedded foods. Expand
Capuchin monkey biogeography: understanding Sapajus Pleistocene range expansion and the current sympatry between Cebus and Sapajus
TLDR
The results support vicariance dividing ancestral capuchin populations in Amazonia versus the Atlantic Forest, and a Pleistocene “Amazonian invasion” by Sapaju to explain the present day sympatry of Cebus and Sapajus. Expand
The mystery of the origins of Cebus albifrons malitiosus and Cebus albifrons hypoleucus: mitogenomics and microsatellite analyses revealed an amazing evolutionary history of the Northern Colombian white-fronted capuchins
TLDR
A large sample of gracile capuchins, including all of the recognized species, were sequenced to offset the paucity of phylogenic and phylogeographic data regarding this group and to try to understand their phylogeny and evolution. Expand
How Many Species, Taxa, or Lineages of Cebus albifrons (Platyrrhini, Primates) Inhabit Ecuador? Insights from Mitogenomics
TLDR
It is concluded that a large portion of the gracile capuchin taxa form a unique species with a complex of populations and subspecies, and has conserved its reproductive integrity by repeated episodes of reticulation and high levels of gene flow. Expand
Assessment of genetic variability in captive capuchin monkeys (Primates: Cebidae)
TLDR
The aim of this work was to evaluate the genetic and phenotypic variability of captive specimens putatively belonging to S. cay and S. nigritus at their southernmost distribution limit, and identified two genetic divergent SCY groups: samples from NOA and from NEA with high mitochondrial diversity. Expand
A phylogenomic perspective on the robust capuchin monkey (Sapajus) radiation: First evidence for extensive population admixture across South America.
TLDR
STRUCTURE analysis of population clustering revealed widespread admixture among Sapajus populations within the Amazon and even into the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest. Expand
Taxonomic review of the New World tamarins (Primates: Callitrichidae)
TLDR
It is argued that the nigricollis group be recognized as a distinct genus, taking into account the Late Miocene divergence time between the large- and small-bodied tamarin lineages. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among Capuchin (Cebidae, Platyrrhini) lineages: An old event of sympatry explains the current distribution of Cebus and Sapajus
TLDR
The results support the SEV hypothesis, showing that the current syntopic distribution of Cebus and Sapajus can be explained by a sympatric speciation event in the Amazon. Expand
Reanalysis of the biogeographical hypothesis of range expansion between robust and gracile capuchin monkeys
TLDR
It is suggested that the divergence of capuchin monkey genera may have occurred in the Atlantic Forest, however, a more conclusive scenario and better resolution of the species tree requires correct identification of species, data from several unlinked nuclear loci from a higher number of individuals per species, and careful analysis of ancient DNA data from museum specimens. Expand
Capuchin monkey research priorities and urgent issues
TLDR
Capuchin research priorities and urgent issues are presented based on the discussion by capuchin researchers in the roundtable, including a call for the immediate end to the use of the name Cebus apella and the employment of the term Sapajus spp. Expand

Cebus Phylogenetic Relationships: A Preliminary Reassessment of the Diversity of the Untufted Capuchin Monkeys
TLDR
The authors' data indicate that untufted capuchins underwent a radiation at about 2 Ma, and quickly diversified in both the Andes and the Amazon, which led to a time‐calibrated phylogeny based upon mitochondrial DNA sequences from 50 Cebus samples from across their range. Expand
Notes on the taxonomy and distributions of the tufted capuchin monkeys (Cebus, Cebidae) of South America
TLDR
This paper presents some notes which resulted from the analysis of a recent published hypothesis regarding their systematics, and briefly discusses its concordance with the results of a largely unpublished PhD thesis of tufted capuchin systematics completed by Cecilia Torres de Assumpcao in 1983.

Notes on American Monkeys of the Genus Cebus
Critical remarks by the late Dr. G. H. H. Tate (1954) regarding my identification of Cebus apella Linnaeus seem to be founded on a misunderstanding of the significance of certain external charactersExpand
Taxonomy of squirrel monkeys genus Saimiri (cebidae, platyrrhini): A preliminary report with description of a hitherto unnamed form
TLDR
Two groups of squirrel monkeys, genus Saimiri, are distinguished by external characters, characterized by reduction from seven to six or five paired acrocentric autosomes through pericentric inversion with reciprocal increase in number of paired submetacentric or subtelocentric autosomes. Expand
Two new species of night monkeys, genus Aotus (Cebidae, platyrrhini): A preliminary report on Aotus taxonomy
TLDR
The nine allopatric species of Aotus recognized represent two natural groups distinguished by karyotype, color, and pelage patterns, and a key to the species and subspecies gives the diagnostic characters of each. Expand
Living New World monkeys (Platyrrhini) : with an introduction to Primates
TLDR
This long-awaited work gives a detailed account of the origin, evolution, dispersal, and behavior of platyrrhines and a systematic arrangement of all known forms, living and extinct, of New World monkeys. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and phylogeography of the white-fronted capuchin (Cebus albifrons; Cebidae, Primates) by means of mtCOII gene sequences.
TLDR
The ρ-statistic applied to the median-joining network yielded that the major part of the temporal splits estimated occurred in the Pleistocene, reinforcing the importance of the Pleistsocene refugia during the evolution of C. albifrons. Expand
Explosive Pleistocene range expansion leads to widespread Amazonian sympatry between robust and gracile capuchin monkeys
TLDR
The biogeographic history of capuchins suggests late Miocene geographic isolation of the gracile and robust forms, which suggests the genus Cebus should be split into two genera to reflect the Miocene divergence and two subsequent Pliocene radiations. Expand

The Taxonomy and Distribution of Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri)
TLDR
Anatomically squirrel monkeys have a number of peculiarities, such as an interorbital fenestra, a double brachioradialis muscle in the arm, and a prominent articulation between the calcaneus and navicular bones of the foot, which suggest that squirrel monkey have a long evolutionary history independent of other primates.
