 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: Considered a synonym of frater by Redford and Eisenberg (1992) and Woods (1993) without comment but listed as a distinct species by Galliari et al. (1996). Thomas (1921b) recognized four subspecies but Ellerman (1940) treated sylvanus as a separate species and considered utibilis as a subspecies of that taxon. Galliari et al. (1996) listed barbarus as a distinct species
