Notes
  1. The description of the Tapanuli orangutan was a collaboration between 37 scientists from institutions around the world but its binomial name (scientific name) was provided by the five scientists cited here. They are cited as the bionomial authority because in zoological nomenclature, the binomial authority is the person or team who provides the binomial name.
