Range Description

Callicebus cupreus occurs south of the Río Marañon/Rio Solimões, as far as the east bank of the Río Ucayali, in Loreto and northern Ucayali, Peru. To the south it ranges into Acre as far as the headwaters of the Rios Juruá and Purús in Brazil, and north-east as far as the lower and middle Rio Juruá and extending into the Rios Juruá/Purús interfluve south and maybe also north of the RioTapauá, a left bank tributary of the Rio Purús. East it ranges as far as the left bank of the Rio Purús (Hershkovitz 1990; Van Roosmalen et al. 2002). van Roosmalen and colleagues (2002) suggest that C. cupreus and C. moloch groups are ecologically similar and therefore allopatric, but members of these groups are sympatric with species from the torquatus group.
