They have a number of distinct features that separates them from other include grasping hands and feet, nails and stereoscopic vision. Two Systems of Classification.

The traditional classification approach put the primates into two suborders: Prosimii and Anthropoidea. The Prosimii contained lemurs, lorises, and tarsiers while anthropoidea consisted of monkeys and apes. The traditional classification approach used levels of taxonomic complexity to determine which suborder a primate should belong.
