 Red-backed squirrel monkey - Saimiri oerstedii: More Information - ARKive
This species has two subspecies: the fl-crowned Central American squirrel monkey, Saimiri oerstedii oerstedii, is classified as Endangered (EN B1ab (I, ii, iii)) and the grey-crowned Central American squirrel monkey, Saimiri oerstedii citrinellus, is classified as Critically Endangered (CR B1ab (i, ii, iii)) (1).
It also bears a distinctive crown on its head; in the fl-crowned subspecies (Saimiri oerstedii oerstedii), this crown is, as the name suggests, fl, whereas in the grey-crowned Central American squirrel monkey (Saimiri oerstedii citrinellus) it is grey.
The grey-crowned subspecies Saimiri oerstedii citrinellus is critically endangered and has lost 89% of its original habitat in Costa Rica, with the remaining range (just 210km²) being severely fragmented (1).

Also the traditional cebid-callitrichid dichotomy is radically altered: Cebinae, consisting of Cebus (capuchin monkeys) and Saimiri (squirrel monkeys), is the sister of Callitrichinae and these two subfamilies constitute the family Cebidae.
We plan to gather extensive additional DNA sequence data in order to test the congruent branching arrangements of the epsilon and IRBP maximum parsimony trees, especially those arrangements that are controversial when compared to the cladistic evidence from previous morphological studies (11-14).
To pursue these aims, it will be important to enlarge the DNA sequence data from additional ceboid species and outgroup species (from a broader range of non-ceboid primates) and from noncoding regions (introns) of additional unlinked nuclear genes.
