SPECIES Galago orinus

Author:Lawrence and Washburn, 1936.
Citation:Occas. Pap. Boston Soc. Nat. Hist., 8: 259.
Common Name:Uluguru Bushbaby
Type Locality:Tanzania, Uluguru Mtns, Bagilo.
Distribution:High elevations in Uluguru and probably Usambara Mtns.
Status:CITES Appendix II; IUCN Data Deficient.
Comments:G. orinus species group. Bearder et al. (1995) place this group in genus Galagoides, but Groves (2001c) and Delpero et al. (2000) considered this premature, as it is unclear how species should be assorted between Galagoides and Galago. Separated from G. demidoff by Bearder et al. (1995), and accepted as a distinct species by Groves (2001c).
