SPECIES Galago zanzibaricus

Author:Matschie, 1893.
Citation:Sitzb. Ges. Naturf. Fr. Berlin: 111.
Common Name:Zanzibar Bushbaby
Type Locality:Tanzania, Zanzibar, Yambiani.
Distribution:E African coast from Tana River, south to S Mozambique; Zanzibar.
Status:CITES Appendix II; IUCN Lower Risk (nt).
Comments:G. zanzibaricus species group. Separated from senegalensis by Kingdon (1971:309), Groves (1974b:463, 1989:103, 2001c), Jenkins (1987:118), and Nash et al. (1989). Bearder et al. (1995) placed this group in genus Galagoides, but Groves (2001c) considered this premature, as it is unclear how species should be assorted between Galagoides and Galago. For allocation of udzungwensis to this species, see Groves (2001c:116).
