Theropithecus brumpti had a dental formula of 2:1:2:3 on both the upper and lower jaws (Fleagle, 1988). This species had high shearing crests (Fleagle, 1988). This species had an average body mass of around 50.0 kilograms (Fleagle, 1988).
Theropithecus brumpti was found in East Africa during the late Pliocene epoch (Fleagle, 1988).
Based upon the dental morphology, the high shearing crests of the teeth, this was a folivorous species (Fleagle, 1988).
