    I was thinking about words for animals such as feline, equine, lupine, etc. and couldn't find any such word relating to monkeys, apes or humans.

    Is there such a word and I just missed it? I did think "homine" but that didn't come up with anything relevant.

    Ah, I missed that extra "in" in there.

    But if that's for human people specifically, what about for other primates?
