This chapter describes the cercopithecid fossils recovered from the late Miocene sediments of the western margin and Central Awash Complex (CAC) of the Middle Awash. Cercopithecids in the Adu-Asa Formation and the Kuseralee Member of the Sagantole Formation are rare compared to other taxa, with total specimens collected from late Miocene Middle Awash deposits constituting only 3.8 percent of the total number of collected vertebrate specimens identifiable below the family level.
