Abstract:



Mentilin (Cephalopachus bancanus bancanus) is a flagship species of Bangka Island and considered as an endangered subspecies. It is a nocturnal primate with big and round red eyes. This research aimed to identify distribution and population of mentilin in Bangka Regency by using line transect method. The research was conducted at rubber (Hevea brasiliensis) agroforest in four villages (i.e., Zed, Kemuja, Paya Benua and Petaling) in Bangka Regency, Bangka Belitung Islands Province, Indonesia, from January 2016 to May 2016. In total of four observed-line transects with each length of 2 km showed that the highest distribution of mentilin was obtained in mentilin habitat in Petaling Village and the lowest distribution of mentilin was obtained in mentilin habitat in Zed Village. The distribution of mentilin was affected by distance of mentilin habitat to settlement and shrub. The population density of mentilin was 2.22-17.78 individuals/km2. The population estimate of mentilin in the village of Zed, Kemuja, Paya Benua and Petaling was 90 individuals, 296 individuals, 348 individuals and 1,078 individuals.
