Usually called Anthropoidea; for the potential confusion surrounding this name, and why it is best avoided, see Hoffstetter (1982). McKenna and Bell (1997) divided living members into two superfamilies, Callitrichoidea and Cercopithecoidea (including what are usually separated as Hominoidea), corresponding to parvorders Platyrrhini and Catarrhini recognized herein (where Platyrrhini includes New World taxa in families Cebidae, Aotidae, Pitheciidae, and Atelidae; and Catarrhini includes Old World taxa in Superfamiliy Cercopithecoidea [including Family Cercopithecidae] and Superfamily Hominoidea [families Hylobatidae and Hominidae]). Goodman et al. (1998) also regarded the catarrhines as over-split.
