Wow Peter! Did your guide mention any common name? If he told you he hadn't see any of them in 12 years... There is this howler who is listed as Critically Endangered in Brazil, Northern Brown Howler monkey (Alouatta guariba guariba), but as I said on Martin howler's picture, I can't be that sure either! But its so cool you got to see it.
