 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: Comments: This genus is being renamed and redefined (Mootnick and Groves, in prep), as Bunopithecus sericus is outside the modern gibbon clade and the Hoolock gibbon does not belong to the same genus (Groves, 2001c); this was the reason why Groves (2001c) did not take the step of elevating the subgenera of Hylobates to generic rank
