Abstract: We conducted a 5-month survey on primates, with special attention to Goeldi's monkey (Callimico goeldii), in the rain forest of northwestern Bolivia. Goeldi's monkey is one of the least documented of all South American primates, and very little is known about its distribution. We report observations on distribution, abundance, and habitat of Callimico goeldii and other primates, incidental sightings of other mammals, and preliminary behavioral observations on Callimico and on two associated callitrichid monkey species: Saguinus fuscicollis and S. labiatus. We found a locality that appears to be particularly suitable for detailed observations on Callimico on the north bank of the lower Río Tahuamanu.
