Journal/Book Name, Vol. No.:
Zootaxa, issue 3866, no. 3
See Ferrari et al. (2014) for an explanation of the reinstatement of Cacajao ouakary (Spix, 1823) over C. hosomi Boubli et al. 2008
Boubli et al.'s 2008 taxonomy was contested by Ferrari et al. (2014), but at a Red Listing Workshop held in January 2014 Boubli convincingly defended the 2008 taxonomy and a decision was made by the Primate Specialist Group to maintain it (Antony Rylands, pers. comm., 20 July 2015)

ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
