Bare-faced Tamarin Section

Division of the genus Saguinus based on the presence or absence of facial fur, and other pelage patterns. Not a subgenus. The bare-faced tamarin section consists of two groups. The major distinguishing features are a densely furred crown, but a naked face. The S. bicolor group consists of S. bicolor only. The S. oedipus group consists of S. oedipus and S. leucopus, which are distinguished from the S. bicolor group by body pelage features.
