|Taxonomic Notes:||Papio kindae has previously been considered a subspecies of P. cyanocephalus (Grubb et al. 2003; Groves 2001, 2005) and was assessed as such in 2008. It is now recognized as a full species because it is morphologically and genetically distinctive as the five other baboon species (Mittermeier et al. 2013). Preliminary behavioural observations also suggest significance differences compared with P. cyanocepahalus (Mittermeier et al. 2013).
This is an updated assessment to reflect the promotion of the subspecies to species-level and the inclusion of information previously contained within the former species-level assessment.
