Common Squirrel Monkey (Saimiri sciureus) sebastian_garcia Mon, 27 Apr 2020 17:52:26 +0000

actualmente la especie reconocida para Colombia es Saimiri cassiquiarensis (con las spp S. cassiquiarensis cassiquiarensis, S. cassiquiarensis macrodon y S. cassiquiarensis albigena). Revisar Lynch-Alfaro et al 2015 y la página web de la APC.




iNat mammal taxonomy follows the Mammal Diversity Database or IUCN. We do not try to keep up with primary literature, see for more details. In this case we are following IUCN because they provide maps, which are necessary for re-assigning identifications (neither MDD nor Lynch-Alfaro provide maps). It is also worth noting that Lynch-Alfaro in fact recommended 5 subspecies, not all of which currently have recognized scientific names:

"Our interim recommendation is to consider five subspecies of S. cassiquiarensis, which correspond to clades: cassiquiarensis, albigena, macrodon A (Marañón and Napo Centers), macrodon B (Inambari Center) and macrodon C (Imeri Center) in our phylogenetic tree."

We're now in line with what you describe and also with IUCN which considers S. macrodon a ssp of Species Saimiri cassiquiarensis
but are otherwise in line with Mammal Diversity Database
