Four hemoglobin phenotypes have been noted in the pigtailed monkey ( Macaca nemestrina). Pedigree studies suggest a simple codominant Mendelian explanation for inheritance of three of these phenotypes, including one electrophoretically identical with human type A. The fourth type occurred in only one animal in this series.
