Taxonomic Notes: Grubb et al. (2003) treated Cercopithecus wolfi as a subspecies of C. pogonias, along with denti, elegans and pyrogaster (this is the treatment followed for the 2008 IUCN Red List). Groves (2005) considered C. wolfi as a distinct species with wolfielegans and pyrogaster as subspecies. Gautier-Hion et al. (1999) included denti as a subspecies of C. wolfi. Gautier-Hion (2013) treats C. denti and C. wolfi as a distinct species with elegans and pyrogaster as subspecies of the latter; this treatment is now followed here. This is an updated assessment to reflect the taxonomic change.
