|Scientific Name:||Cebus malitiosus|
|Species Authority:||Elliot, 1909|
Cebus albifrons ssp. malitiosus Elliot, 1909
|Taxonomic Notes:||Molecular genetic analyses by Lynch Alfaro et al. (2010) and Boubli et al. (2012) indicated that Cebus albifrons malitiosus classified as a subspecies by Hershkovitz (1949), should be considered a distinct species.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Endangered B1ab(i,ii,iii,iv) 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 Endangered due to a reduced geographic range (approximately ~3,000 km²) and continuing decline resulting from deforestation and coastal development. Within the remaining extent of occurrence (EOO), the area of occupancy (AOO) is only several hundred square kilometers along the northern flanks of the Santa Marta Mountains - restricting them to a small and fragmented area. However, very little is known of the current status, and although the species is considered threatened, further research is necessary to quantify the distribution and condition of the remaining subpopulations.
