The report counted 42,000 black-shanked douc langurs along with 2,500 yellow-cheeked crested gibbons in Cambodia's Seima Biodiversity Conservation Area, an estimate that represents the largest known populations for both species in the world.
Prior to the recent discovery in the Seima Biodiversity Conservation Area, the largest known populations were believed to be in adjacent Vietnam, where black-shanked douc langurs and yellow-cheeked crested gibbons hover at 600 and 200 respectively.
Nevertheless, it still harbors several mammals and birds of conservation significance, including the Owston's banded civet (Hemigalus owstoni), white-cheeked gibbon (Hylobates leucogenys), red-shanked douc langur (Pygathrix nemaeus), and Francois's leaf monkey (Semnopithecus francoisi).
There are several large mammals of conservation significance in this ecoregion, including the endangered douc langur (Pygathrix nemaeus), red-cheeked gibbon (Hylobates gabriellae), and pileated gibbon (Hylobates pileatus) and potentially the tiger (Panthera tigris).
A new subspecies of douc langur, Pygathrix nemaeus cinereus ssp. nov.
The douc langur (Pygathrix nemaeus, EN) is a primate species found in Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia.
The douc langur and the murid Maxomys moi are near endemics, whereas the northern smooth-tailed tree shrew (Dendrogale murina) is endemic (Table 1).
