Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family

Scientific Name: Lagothrix cana ssp. tschudii
Species Authority: Pucheran, 1857
Parent Species:
Common Name(s):
English Peruvian Woolly Monkey, Woolly Monkey
Spanish Marimono Del Frio, Mono Barrigudo, Mono Rosillo
Taxonomic Notes: Lagothrix l. tschudi Pucheran, 1857 was not recognized in the last comprehensive review of Lagothrix taxonomy (Fooden 1963). Fooden (1963) considered it a junior synonym of L. lagotricha cana. The name based on a Peruvian specimen was referred to as L. humboldtii by I. Geoffroy, 1851; report of specimen “indiqué comme originaire de Bolivie”. Groves (2001, 2005) recognized Lagothrix cana tschudii as a valid subspecies, but the type locality is not known (Bolivia or Peru).

Cruz Lima (1945) depicted an orange-coloured infant Lagothrix, evidently from a specimen in the Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi, Belém, and reportedly from the Río Napo. This form was discovered by C. A. Peres in 2002 on the upper Rios Jutaí and Jutaízinho. It was reported by Van Roosmalen (2003), who gave it a latin binomial which, as it was described only on the website, is not valid.
