Procolobus badius subspecies oustaleti (Trouessart, 1906)
Taxonomic Notes: Gautier-Hion et al. (1999) regarded oustaleti as a complex of six forms, three west of the Oubangui (oustaleti sensu stricto with synonyms umbrinus, nigrimanus and an undescribed form from the vicinity of the Lobaye River, a tributary of the lower Oubangui, Central African Republic) and three to the east (shubotzi, powelli and brunneus with synonym multicolor). Groves (2005) considered oustaleti as a subspecies of P. foai, and subsequently (Groves in press) as a distinct species. It is here considered as a subspecies of P. rufomitratus following Struhsaker and Grubb (in press).
