Juvenile male neblina uakari eating fruit
|Common Name||Black-headed Uakari|
|Range||northwest Brazilian Amazon and adjacent southern Venezuela.|
The English name of the Neblina uakari refers to the Pico da Neblina, which marks the approximate center of its known distribution. Several years before it was realized it represented an undescribed species (and not "just" black-headed uakaris), it was studied in the Pico da Neblina National Park in Brazil. When combined with the adjacent Serranía de la Neblina National Park in Venezuela, a significant part of this uakaris distribution is within protected areas.
It has well coordinated travel established through constant calling, allowing a group to spread 200 to 300 meters.
Females produce one offspring, typically in March and April coinciding with the fruiting season.
