Range DescriptionAt the time of its description, Mico acariensis had not been observed in the wild, but according to local settlers it occurred along the right bank of the lower Rio Acarí, and presumably as such through the interfluvium of the Rios Acarí (in the west) and Sucundurí (to the east), south perhaps to a contact zone with M. melanurus between the Rios Aripuanã and Juruena (Van Roosmalen et al. 2000). Noronha et al. (2007), reporting on an expedition to the region in 2004, recorded it at three localities along the west (left) bank of the Rio Sucunduri: Vila do Sucunduri (06º48'S, 59º04'W); Igarape’ Surubim (06º54'S, 59º03'W), and Igarapé do Liso (07º17'S, 58º50'W). These localities confirm the range supposed by Van Roosmalen et al. (2000).
