It is doubtful that the current taxonomy provides a true picture of the diversity of the genus Aotus . Ruiz-Herrera et al . (2005) reported that cytogenetic studies have characterized 18 different karyotypes with diploid numbers ranging from 46 to 58 chromosomes. The taxonomy of the night monkeys, following the revision by Hershkovitz (1983), with some modifications for the Colombian and Central American forms.

Reviewing the entire taxonomy and distributions of the night monkeys, Aotus , Ford (1994) carried out multivariate analyzes of craniodental measures and pelage patterns and color, and also took into consideration chromosomal data and blood protein variations. Ford (1994) concluded that there was "good support" for just two species north of the Amazon River: A. trivirgatus (Humboldt, 1812) east and north of Rio Negro, and the polymorphic A. vociferans to the west of the Rio Negro. Aotus vociferans , as such, would include all the forms north of the Amazon River / Solimões in Brazil (west of the Rio Negro), Peru, Colombia and Ecuador, and in the Chocó, northern Colombia and Colombian Andes, and Panama: brumbacki , lemurinus , griseimembra , and zonalis .

Defler and Bueno (2007) discussed the karyology of the gray-necked night monkeys and reaffirmed the validity of A. brumbacki , A. Griseimembra , A. lemurinus , A. trivirgatus , A. vociferans and A. zonalis .

I made lids with funny animal heads, stained them with oxides and underglazes, then covered them with a low-fire clear glaze. If it is fired just right, water will be drawn from it by the touch of something more dry, like fine soil or plant roots.
