 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: Comments: Species groups are (1) C. capucinus group (capucinus, albifrons, olivaceus, kaapori), (2) C. apella group (apella, libidinosus, nigritus, xanthosternos). The following specific names probably refer to this genus, but are regarded by Groves (2001c) as not certainly identifiable to species: albulus (Kerr, 1792); albus É. Geoffroy, 1812; barbatus É. Geoffroy, 1812; flavia (Schreber, 1774); flavus (Goldfuss, 1809); lugubris Erxleben, 1777; pucheranii Dahlbom, 1856; paraguayanus Reichenbach, 1862
