The Bornean white-bearded gibbon, (Hylobates albibarbis), also known as the Bornean agile gibbon or southern gibbon, is an endangered species of gibbon endemic to southern Borneo, between the Kapuas and Barito rivers.

The Bornean white-bearded gibbon was formerly considered a subspecies of the agile gibbon but based on recent DNA research, some now classify it as a separate species.[1][3][4]
