Dear Salima, for African mammal skulls in general I have found this site
useful http://www.devdirection.com/tanzania/default.html the key has its
limits and a mistake in the serval/caracal distinction but is pretty good
and covers a lot of things also found in Egyptian material. the other one
to look at is the animal diversity web - if I have the correct link below
you should find 2 pages of specimen skulls - the second page has 2 good
images of various cercopithidae maxillae
I could also compare with a few skulls and bones I have here if you send
pictures/measurements. Remember also that there is a big sex difference in
the baboons which is horribly confusing!
Sheila PS if you find anything better please let me know!

Is there any particularly good atlas with images of monkey and ape
skulls (and post-cranials as well). I have some burials in Egypt and
a very limited number of comparatives (like one irrelevant one).
