The behaviour of an adult Stump-tailed Macaque (Macaca arctoides) while in three different experimental situations, is compared. The experimental situations were the following: (I) the female is alone, (II) the female is in the presence of a male while allogrooming is prevented by a plexiglas partition, or (III) the male is present and allogrooming is allowed through a slit in the partition. Comparison of the situations (I) and (II) shows the presence of male induces in the female a tendency to stay close to the male, a slight reduction of locomotion and an increase in the duration of autogrooming. When the female has the opportunity to allogroom, comparing II and III, she prefers to allogroom over walking away from the male as well as over autogrooming.
