Synonyms: Cebus annellatus; Cebus apiculatus; Cebus capucinus leporinus; Cebus castaneus; Cebus nigrivittatus

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 genus Cebus is divided into several different species. However, taxonomists argue over the specific divisions within the genus, which are uncertain and controversial. Cebus olivaceus is known to dwell in tall, primary forest and travel over long distances during the day.
