Surili (Presbytis comata) is one of endemic primates of West Java whose its existence was protected. The purpose of the reseach is to  determine the estimated home range and the preferences of Suliri food plant at the in Situ habitat area Patengan Natural Reserve, West Java. The home range area was determined by the minimum convex polygon method by connecting the coordinates of the outermost entire area groups. Focal animal sampling and Ad-libitum methods were applied to obtain data feed preferences for details. The result showed that home range area of Surili group in The Situ Patengan Natural Reserve has varied , respectively group A has a home range area covering 3.52 Hectares, Group B 4.43 Hectares, Group C 3.76 Hectares, Group D 3.14 Hectares, while individual solitary of Surili has an extensive range covering 2,64 Hectares. Based on observation there were 27 species of 16 families of plants that look directly consumed by Surili. Surili more often consumed Castanopsis javanica (10.07%), C. argentea (9.35%), C. tungurut (7.91%), Slonea sigun (7.91%), and Quercus sp. (7.19%).
