I've asked several people and all of them told me this is an an undescribed species. No specimen was taken (only an individual) and a return to the site was fruitless.

Interspecies grooming. A confiscated and captive black mangabey (Lophocebus aterrimus: native to Angola and DRC, across the continent) and a free-ranging Syke's monkey. Interesting, no? Species that would never co-occur together in the wild, forging a bond across a cage boundary.
