Dendropithecus is an extinct genus of apes native to East Africa between 20 and 15 million years ago. Dendropithecus was originally suggested to be related to modern gibbons, based primarily on similarities in size, dentition, and skeletal adaptations. However, further studies have shown that Dendropithecus lacks derived hominoid traits. Instead, the traits shared between this taxon and modern primates are primitive for all catarrhines. Dendropithecus is now considered to be a stem catarrhine, too primitive to be closely related to any modern primates.

  • Dendropithecus es un género extinto de primates catarrinos que vivió durante el Burdigaliense (Mioceno) entre hace 20 y 17 millones de años.​​ La única especie descrita del género, Dendropithecus macinnesi, a partir de un fragmento mandibular, era un animal esbelto, pesaba entre 5 y 9 kg, medía unos 90 cm, y pudo se el ancestro de los gibones a los cuales se asemeja en algunos aspectos.​ La anatomía de sus brazos sugiere que pudo ser un braquiador, aunque menos eficiente que los gibones modernos; sin embargo, su dentadura sugiere una dieta similar a estos, constituida por frutas, hojas y flores.​
  • Il dendropiteco (Dendropithecus macinnesi) è un primate estinto, appartenente ai catarrini. Visse nel Miocene inferiore (circa 18 - 16 milioni di anni fa) e i suoi resti fossili sono stati ritrovati in Kenya.
  • Dendropithecus is een uitgestorven monotypisch geslacht van zoogdieren dat voorkwam in het Vroeg- tot Midden-Mioceen.
  • Дендропитек (лат. Dendropithecus) — вымерший род обезьян Восточной Африки, где его представители обитали 15—20 млн лет назад. Может быть предком современных гиббонов, которых напоминает своим внешним видом. Семейство иногда возводят в ранг надсемейства . Дендропитек был стройным животным размером примерно 60 см. Судя по строению конечностей, он был способен к брахиации, раскачиваясь на руках между деревьями, но не столь эффективно, как это делают современные гиббоны. Зубы были приспособлены к такой же пище, как и у гиббонов, к плодам, мягким листьям и цветам.

  • Dendropithecus is an extinct genus of apes native to East Africa between 20 and 15 million years ago. Dendropithecus was originally suggested to be related to modern gibbons, based primarily on similarities in size, dentition, and skeletal adaptations. However, further studies have shown that Dendropithecus lacks derived hominoid traits. Instead, the traits shared between this taxon and modern primates are primitive for all catarrhines. Dendropithecus is now considered to be a stem catarrhine, too primitive to be closely related to any modern primates. Dendropithecus was a slender ape, about 60 centimetres (2.0 ft) in body length. The structure of its arms suggest that it would have been able to brachiate, swinging between trees by its arms, but that it would not have been as efficient at this form of movement as modern gibbons. However, its teeth suggest a very gibbon-like diet, likely consisting of fruit, soft leaves and flowers. Dendropithecus macinnesi was originally described as a new species of , L. macinnesi, in 1950, before it was recognized as a distinct genus in 1977. D. ugandensis, known primarily from material from Napak, Uganda, is morphologically similar to D. macinnesi, but is 15-20% smaller than the type species. An additional species, D. orientalis, was described in 1990 from middle Miocene deposits in northern Thailand, but was transferred to the pliopithecid genus in 1999.
