|Scientific Name:||Cebus cesarae|
|Species Authority:||Hershkovitz, 1949|
Cebus albifrons ssp. cesarae Hershkovitz, 1949
|Taxonomic Notes:||Molecular genetic analyses by Lynch Alfaro et al. (2010) and Boubli et al. (2012) indicated that Cebus albifrons cesarae classified as a subspecies by Hershkovitz (1949), should be considered a distinct species.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Data Deficient ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||de la Torre, S., Morales, A. L., Link, A., Palacios, E. & Stevenson, P.|
|Reviewer(s):||Mittermeier, R.A. & Rylands, A.B.|
This species is listed as Data Deficient due to an almost complete lack of information of the distribution of the species. Most of the known range of this species has been deforested, but over the past 300 or so years. Remaining forests are currently threatened by cultivation of illegal crops, coffee, mining, monoculture plantation, and cattle ranching. This species is a priority for research and surveys are needed in remaining habitat - especially the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and surrounding areas.
