The range of Pennant’s red colobus (Piliocolobus pennantii) has been reduced to only a few small areas in Central West Africa. One subspecies, P. p. pennantii (Bioko red colobus), is present in the southwestern side of Bioko Island. In the eastern and central Democratic Republic of Congo, the subspecies P. p. bouvien (Bouvier’s red colobus) is present. Another subspecies, P. p. epieni (Niger delta red colobus) is aptly named, as it is found in southern Nigeria.
