Abstract

Plecturocebus caquetensis (Defler, Bueno, and García, 2010) is a Neotropical primate commonly called the Caquetá titi monkey. It is small-sized with long, soft pelage of mixed coloration including grayish and buffy brown to agouti tones. It lacks the blackish or whitish band that is present on the forehead of closely related species. The tail is agouti-colored and slightly banded at its base. Endemic to the Amazonian region of Colombia with a distribution in areas near the eastern slopes of the Eastern and Central Cordillera of the Andes, P. caquetensis is confirmed in 104 localities in the departments of Cauca and Caquetá in Colombia. P. caquetensis is considered “Critically Endangered” (CR) by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
