SELA MACAQUE (MACACA SELAI)

  • Identified and analysed by a team of experts from the Zoological Survey of India (ZSI) and the University of Calcutta
  • The phylogenetic analysis revealed that the Sela macaque was geographically separated from the Arunachal macaque (Macaca munzala) of Tawang district by Sela.
  • This mountain pass acted as a barrier by restricting the migration of individuals of these two species for approximately two million years
  • Has a tail longer than the Tibetan macaque, Assamese macaque, Arunachal macaque and the white-cheeked macaque but shorter than the bonnet macaque and toque macaque
  • Sela macaque belongs to the sinica species-group of Macaca, but it differs from all other members of this group through attributes such as brown collar hair and muzzle, and the absence of chin whiskers
  • Sela is a mountain pass situated between Dirang and Tawang towns in western Arunachal Pradesh
