The northern plains gray langur (Semnopithecus entellus) is a species of primate in the family Cercopithecidae. The southern plains gray langur (Semnopithecus dussumieri) was previously classified as a subspecies of S. entellus, i.e., S. entellus dussumieri.[3] It's range covers a large portion of India south of the Himalayas south to the Tapti River and the Krishna River.[4][5] It is thought to be introduced to western Bangladesh by Hindu pilgrims on the bank of the Jalangi River.[2] Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical dry shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss.[2]
