In modern scientific use, only members of the genus Papio are called baboons, but previously the closely related Gelada (genus Theropithecus) and two species of Mandrill and Drill (genus Mandrillus) were grouped in the same genus, and these monkeys are still often referred to as baboons in everyday speech. Papio belongs to family Cercopithecidae, in subfamily Cercopithecinae. ...more on Wikipedia about "Baboon"

They generally live in groups and are currently endangered. ...more on Wikipedia about "Gee's Golden Langur"
Gelada (Theropithecus gelada) is a species of Old World monkey, found only in the highlands of Ethiopia and Eritrea. Like baboons, they are terrestrial, and spend their time foraging in grasslands. Some authorities used to group the Gelada with baboons in the genus Papio, but since 1979 it has become customary to place them in a separate genus, Theropithecus. Theropithecus gelada is the only living species, but at least two separate lineages are known in the fossil record. While Geladas are restricted to Ethiopia and Eritrea today, fossils of the genus are known from South Africa, Malawi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Algeria, Morocco, Spain, and India. ...more on Wikipedia about "Gelada"
