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 https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/curator+guide#policies 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
