Wikipedia Abstract

The wedge-capped capuchin or weeper capuchin (Cebus olivaceus) is a capuchin monkey from South America. It is found in northern Brazil, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, Venezuela and possibly northern Colombia. The Cebus genus is divided into several different species. However, taxonomists argue over the specific divisions within the genus, which are uncertain and controversial.
