Abstract: The genus Macaca, comprising 21 wellcharacterized species, represents the largest and one of the most ecologically and socially diverse of all the non human primate genera. Eight species of this genus have so far been reported from India. We report here the discovery of the Tibetan macaque, so far believed to be restricted to China, from the high altitudes of central Arunachal Pradesh, a biodiversity-rich state in northeastern India.
