A New Generic Name for the Hoolock Gibbon (Hylobatidae)

Mootnick, Alan; Groves, Colin

Description

Contrary to usual practice, the generic nomen Bunopithecus is not applicable to hoolock gibbons. We recount the history of its application and explain why it is spurious. We supply a new generic name, list the characters and content of the genus, and compare it to the other 3 genera of the Hylobatidae.
