The Platyrrhini, or New World monkeys, are an infraorder of Primates comprised of 16 genera. Molecular phylogenetic analyses have consistently sorted these genera into three groups: the Pitheciidae (e.g., saki and titi monkeys), Atelidae (e.g., spider and howler monkeys), and Cebidae (e.g., night monkeys, squirrel monkeys, and tamarins). No consensus has emerged on the relationships among the three groups or within the Cebidae. Here, approximately 0.8 kb of newly generated intronic DNA sequence… CONTINUE READING
