Aeolopithecus Simons, 1965

Genus of the fossil primate family Propliopithecidae, an anthropoid from the Oligocene epoch. Synonym: Propliopithecus, which is accepted now by most authorities. Recent considerations of sexual dimorphism within P. chirobates has removed this genus as a valid taxon.

See Propliopithecus.
