Yes, they change the name in 2011 for this group from Cebus apella to Sapajus apella. But careful! The Cebus capucinus remains like that!

Bayucca. So the correct scientific name is Sapajus apella?

Please, take the actual name Sapajus as scientific name or make at least a tag for both names, thanks!

Formerly (until 2011!) called Cebus apella. You have to verify, the black head is not clearly shown in your shot. Check also Cebus apella!
