The Pale-coated titi monkey, Callicebus pallescens

In 1907 Oldfield Thomas described the pale-coated titi monkey, Callicebus pallescens, based on a specimen from the Chaco of Paraguay. This species is thought “to be allied to C. donacophilus, with which it shares the greyish-white hands, feet and tail, but the head and body are almost of the same pale colour, so that the animal is one of the palest and most uniformly coloured species of the group”.

The pale-coated titi monkey is restricted to the Chaco of Paraguay and the Pantanal of Brazil.
