Masked titis are restricted to Atlantic coastal forests of Brazil (Nowak 1999). They live only in the southeastern Brazilian states of Bahia, Espirito Santo, Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (Kinzey 1983). There are five subspecies which occupy distinct portions of this area (Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Center, 2001). Callicebus personatus is allopatric with the C. moloch and C. torquatus (Kinzey and Becker 1983).
Titis live in family groups comprised of a male and female pair and their offspring, usually 2 to 7 individuals (Nowak, 1999). They sleep huddled, with tails entwined, in branches 25 to 40 meters high in large trees above the canopy (Kinzey and Becker, 1983; Rowe, 1996). In their usual sleeping position the body is extended and the side of their head rests in their folded hands (Nowak, 1999). Titis leave their sleeping tree at dawn and return in late afternoon (Muller et al., 1997). Adult males are usually always the last to leave the sleeping tree (Kinzey and Becker, 1983).
