Abstract

INTRODUCTIONNon‐human primate (NHP) parasites have attracted considerable attention over the past decades, yet few species of NHPs have been subjected to detailed parasite studies. First, NHPs are a surprisingly diverse mammal group, with the total species number reaching several hundred (Hook, ). Second, many NHPs are highly mobile and thus extremely difficult to follow and sample. Finally, many NHPs are rare or endangered, which makes studying them challenging (Estrada et al., ). These factors are especially true for African NHPs, many of which have been understudied in terms of their parasites. Excepting baboons, a prominent example is papionin monkeys (Cercopithecoidea: Papionini), despite some being locally abundant and apparently important to forest ecosystem ecology (Hook, ). However, parasites of some Old‐world monkeys are well studied, for example, colobines and baboons, but there are few surveys documenting parasites in mangabeys (Lilly, Mehlman, & Doran, ; Mbaya & Udendeye, ; Mbora & Munene ; Mbora, Wieczkowski, & Munene, ; Muriuki, Murugu, Munene, Karere, & Chai, ; Pourrut et al., ). Mangabeys live in large social groups and inhabit a large home range, therefore, they are likely to encounter a number of parasite infective stages. Unlike the majority of NHPs, mangabeys are mostly,
