Re: My previous post wondering what a group of chimpanzees should be called.
I don't know.
Monkeys come in a troop, cartload, tribe, barrel, band, pack, or tribe.
Gorillas come in a band.
Apes come in a shrewdness, band, or pack.
Baboons come in a congress, flange, pack, or tribe.
Monkeys fit in some of these groups and are lumped into others, but I can find no unique name for a group of them. Thus, I have chosen one.
Henceforth, a group of monkeys shall be referred to as a posse.
