 Comments
       
  Comment: Dandelot (1974:14) included Allenopithecus, Erythrocebus, and Miopithecus in this genus; but see Groves (1978) and Corbet and Hill (1980:89) who considered them to be distinct genera; Szalay and Delson (1979) considered Miopithecus a subgenus of Cercopithecus. Van Gelder (1977:8) included Cercocebus, Papio, and Theropithecus in this genus, but see Groves (1978), Ansell (1978:33), and Cronin and Meikle (1979:259). Designated as a subgroup of Simia by Linnaeus; type species S. diana designated by Stiles and Orleman (1926:52). Simia was suppressed by Opinion 114 of the International Commision on Zoological Nomenclature (1929)
