I wanted to review this page (in Science Daily): http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/02/060223090245.htm but SU doesn’t like it and keeps marking it as unavailable… Update: Now available 🙂

Lepilemur randrianasoli sp.

A team of researchers from Madagascar and Europe has identified three new species of lemurs based on differences in a specific gene sequence. The new species also live in distinct geographical areas – but show no obvious morphological differences.

One of the new species is pictured above — pics of the other two can be seen in the pdf file linked from this page.
