Johnston's mangabey

Johnston's mangabey (Lophocebus johnstoni) is a species of crested mangabey in the family Cercopithecidae. It had been considered a subspecies of the gray-cheeked mangabey (L. albigena),[1] but in 2007 was given the status of species by Colin Groves, with Osman Hill's mangabey (L. osmani) and the Uganda mangabey (L. ugandae).[2]
