A 'New' Monkey

Meet Callicebus urubambensis, a "new" monkey which languished in the American Natural History Museum in New York City for almost a century, wrongly labelled. In 2013 a Dutch primatologist conducting a jungle expedition through central Peru found this previously unknown species and named it after the river where he found it. Terrific portrait by an anonymous artist. CLICK for more information.
