TitleOn semnopithecus pyrrhus Horsfield
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractSpecimens belonging to this species are very rare in Zoological collections, the only specimens to be found in Musea are, as far as I am aware, the type-specimens in the British Museum from Horsfield’s collections from Java, and a nearly adult male in the Leyden Museum collected in 1860 by Professor de Vriese, with the exact locality, district Batou, Passarouan-residence, East-Java.
In his well known »Simiae” Schlegel observed that spyrrhus is distinguished from S. maurus : » parce qu’il garde, » pendant toute son existence, la teinte d’un roux-rouge » propre au très jeune âge, teinte qui change, dans le » S. maurus , de très bonne heure, au noir; puis qu’il a » les ongles d’un jaune blanchâtre et non pas bruns.”
