SPECIES Eulemur cinereiceps

Author:A. Grandidier and Milne-Edwards, 1890.
Citation:Hist. Nat. Madagascar, Mamm., 5: 147, pl. 140.
Common Name:Gray-headed Lemur
Type Locality:Madagascar, Frafafangana.
Distribution:Known only from type locality.
Status:CITES Appendix I; U.S. ESA Endangered.
Comments:Discussed by Groves (2001c), who recognized it with a query. The two known specimens (both females) are somewhat different, and both are unlike any known taxon, although females of some taxa, such as E. albocollaris, are poorly known and proper comparison is difficult.
