The bar-lgura was introduced to the D&D game in the first edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.
Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition (1977-1988)
Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition (1989-1999)
In this edition, demons became known as tanar'ri, with the bar-lgura lesser tanar'ri appearing first in the Monstrous Compendium Volume Outer Planes Appendix (1991).
Dungeons & Dragons 3.0 edition (2000-2002)

The barlgura appears in the Monster Manual for this edition (2008), again under the demon entry.
Bar-lguras are savage and cruel demons resembling fiendish orangutans. They normally reside in isolated and inaccessible areas of the Abyss. Sometimes groups of bar-lgura gather up and form a tribe. They love spreading destruction everywhere, even if they are often employed by powerful demon lords as scouts.
