Adult female lion-tailed macaques often harass sexually interacting adult male and female members of the group. The extent of harassment and its implication for reproduction by females was studied in a group in the Anaimalai (presently Indira Gandhi) Wildlife Sanctuary, Tamil Nadu, India. Nearly 1560 hours of observation were made on the same group during nine months in 1979-80 and 15 months in 1982-84. A total of 577 sexual interactions between single adult male and females were recorded.
