A comparison of the reported behaviour of a number of primate species exposed to mirrors indicates that marmosets, tamarins, and gibbons show greater similarity to the great apes™ performance than to that of macaques and capuchins, measured in terms of pattern of interest, change from social responding to exploratory movements, and mirror com- petence. The distribution of mirror performances available from the experiments reported so far suggests that the capac- ity underlying mirror-self-recognition may have started to evolve in monogamous primates. Certain features of monogamous sociality are suggested to have played a role as selection factors in this evolution.
