Siberut langur

The Siberut langur (Presbytis siberu) is a species of monkey in the family Cercopithecidae. It was formerly considered a subspecies of the Mentawai langur, Presbytis potenziani (as Presbytis potenziani siberu) but genetic analysis revealed that these are separate species.[2][3][4] The Siberut langur is native to the island of Siberut in Indonesia. It is listed as endangered by the IUCN.[1]
