Range DescriptionAotus miconax is endemic to the Peruvian Andes, occurring south and east of the Ro Maran and west of the Ro Huallaga (Hershkovitz 1983; Aquino and Encarnacin 1994a). Butchart et al. (1995) recorded the species in the Cordillera de Coln, south of the Ro Chiriaco, at altitudes from 1,730 to 2,400 m above sea level. In the south, it occurs along the left bank of the Ro Huallaga in the Department of Huanaco, from the region of the Ro Aguaytia (tributary of the Ucayali), north through San Martn into the Department of Amazonas, just south the Marann (Aquino and Encarnacin 1994a). This species has been recorded at elevations from 800 to 2,400 m asl.
