The Genus Aotus used to contain only one species (Aotus trivirgatus) with ten subspecies, but in 1983, all ten subspecies were elevated to species level and subsequent genetic work has refined the taxonomy even more (Groves 2001). Within the genus, there are two groups of owl monkeys, the gray-necked (lemurinus and subspecies, Hershkowitz, trivirgatus, and vociferous), found north of the Rio Amazonas (Amazon River) and the red-necked (Micromax, nancy male, nigriceps, azarae and subspecies), found south of the Rio Amazonas (Groves 2001).
It may be necessary to generalize about some of the characteristics of owl monkeys because of the confusion of taxonomy in the literature in addition to the limited published information about this taxonomic group (Wright 1994; Sussman 2000).
