Three new species of lemurs in Madagascar
An international team, composed of Malagasy and European researchers, has just discovered three new species of lemurs, small primates endemic to Madagascar.
The work carried out by this international team has enabled the identification of three new species of lemur based on the characteristics of their mitochondrial DNA : Lepilemur randrianasol, L. aeeclis and L. sahamalazensis.
They were discovered in the West and North West of Madagascar, bringing the number of species of lemur up to 11.
This number probably underestimates the diversity of the Lepilemur genus, with other species no doubt waiting to be discovered in other parts of the island.
