A comprehensive evaluation of the distribution and status of the Nilgiri langur (Semnopithecus johnii, Fischer) a vulnerable primate endemic to the Western Ghats of India was last undertaken in the late 1970’s. Given an increase in indirect threats and continuation of direct threats, it becomes imperative to reassess their current distribution and status for effective conservation interventions.
