A wild population situated in the border of the distributions ofSaimiri sciureus macrodon andS. boliviensis peruviensis, in the Peruvian Amazonia, was studied in relation to 22 protein loci. These genetic markers provided indications of secondary intergradation between these two taxa, reinforcing previous morphological and cytogenetic evidences. Continued studies in this region on the hybrids' viability and fertility may be important for decisions related to the taxonomy of this genus. 
Molecular data highlight hybridization in squirrel monkeys (Saimiri, Cebidae)
TLDR
The results indicate the hybridization of Saimiri boliviensis peruviensis with S. sciureus macrodon, and S. b.
Hybridization Between Neotropical Primates with Contrasting Sexual Dichromatism
TLDR
Sexual selection by means of mate recognition is a weak explanation for the evolution of sexual dichromatism in these species and the confirmation of hybridization in contact zones provides evidence that interspecific differences in male coat color do not function as prezygotic barriers.
Hybridization between Alouatta caraya and Alouatta guariba clamitans in captivity
TLDR
The first confirmed cases of hybridization between a female A. guariba clamitans and a male A. caraya are described, with the birth and survival of the male hybrid for a year and a half indicated the viability of the heterogametic sex.
Morphological Variation of Two Howler Monkey Species and their Genetically- Confirmed Hybrids.
TLDR
This book discusses the impact of intra-sexual selection on sexual dimorphism and testes size in the Mexican howler monkeys Alouatta palliata and A. pigra and the history of primate hybridization.
Phenotypic, Genetic, and Cytogenetic Evidence of Hybridization Between Species of Trans-Andean Tamarins (Genus Saguinus)
TLDR
Evidence is provided to demonstrate three cases of hybridization in captivity between species of Saguinus distributed west of the Andes (trans-Andean) and two independent reciprocal crosses of S. leucopus and the Geoffroy’s tamarin (S. geoffroyi).
Genetic analysis of hybridization between white-handed (Hylobates lar) and pileated (Hylobates pileatus) gibbons in a contact zone in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand
TLDR
A relatively low number of phenotypic hybrids and backcrossed individuals along with a high number of parental types indicates a bimodal hybrid zone, which suggests relatively strong bias in mate selection between the species.
Molecular phylogenetics and phylogeography of all the Saimiri taxa (Cebidae, Primates) inferred from mt COI and COII gene sequences
TLDR
The number of species within this genus is probably more limited than recently proposed by other authors because the Pleistocene was the fundamental epoch when the mitochondrial Saimiri diversification process occurred.
Biogeography of squirrel monkeys (genus Saimiri): South-central Amazon origin and rapid pan-Amazonian diversification of a lowland primate.
Hybridization in howler monkeys: Current understanding and future directions
TLDR
The extent of hybridization in the genus Alouatta is evaluated, the current knowledge of the genetic and morphological aspects of these hybrid systems are revised, and future directions in the study of hybridized within this genus are identified to understand the possible implications of the hybridization process in the evolutionary history of howler monkeys.

Genetic variability in natural populations of the Brazilian night monkey (Aotus infulatus)
TLDR
The results indicate remarkable differences between the subpopulations of the two banks for the CA2, PGD, and GPI polymorphic systems and may indicate a relatively recent spur of evolutionary differentiation in night monkeys of Brazilian Amazonia.
Coat color and biochemical variation in Amazonian wild populations of Alouatta belzebul.
TLDR
A comparative study of 13 blood genetic systems and pelage color variation was performed in four wild populations of Alouatta belzebul, finding that animals from the west bank of the Tocantins River showed less color variation than those from the east bank, and the blood genetic markers revealed an opposite pattern of variation.
Genetic variability inCebus appella paraguayanus: Biochemical analysis of seven loci and variation in Glyoxalase I (E.C.4.4.1.5)
TLDR
An analysis of seven loci in Cebus apella paraguayanus showed that Glyoxalase I was polymorphic due the appearance of two alleles (GLO*2 and GLO*3), confirming that this subspecies has a very low genetic variation among New World primates.
Possible Errors in Identification of Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) from Different South American Points of Export 1
TLDR
Karyological studies on two colonies of monkeys imported into the United States between 1968 and 1974 through six importers found Bolivian monkeys were phenotypically distinguishable by their large size and coloration and Peruvian monkeys were unable to be distinguished by size or color.
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.
The ancestral karyotype of platyrrhine monkeys.
TLDR
The karyotypes of three platyrrhine monkeys were studied using a high resolution banding technique and their chromosomes were determined.
Distribution of chromosomal polymorphisms in three subspecies of squirrel monkeys (genus Saimiri).
TLDR
The presence of nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) and C-band polymorphisms has been examined in three subspecies of squirrel monkeys and pedigreed families were consistent with codominant inheritance of each polymorphism.
Chromosome Banding Patterns in Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) 1
TLDR
Chromosomes of the squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus) are identified and described by specific C and G banding patterns and pericentric inversion involving chromosome pairs B5 and B11 with C1 and C2 is demonstrated.
Karyotypes of squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) from different geographic regions.
TLDR
Findings point to genetic differences which may result in variable responses to laboratory situations and the importance of identifying the source of squirrel monkeys used in biomedical research is apparent if results from different laboratories are to be repeated or compared.
Genetic relationships among three squirrel monkey types: Implications for taxonomy, biomedical research, and captive breeding
TLDR
The use of this panel of biochemical genetic markers, combined with karyotypic analysis, can ensure a high degree of certainty that animals selected for experimental protocols are uniform with respect to unique physiological characteristics of each species and subspecies.
