Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1863: 145.
Common Name:Silvery Greater Galago
Type Locality:Angola: Cuvo Bay.
Distribution:Brachystegiawoodland, from Angola to Tanzania to W Kenya and Rwanda.
Status:CITES Appendix II.
Comments:Separated from crassicaudatus by Groves (2001c), with some misgivings. The zone of intermediacy with O. crassicaudatus is very wide, extending through S Malawi, N Mozambique, and part of Zimbabwe. Kingdon (1997) recognized Otolemur argentatus from the Lake Victoria region, while retaining southerly examples (here Otolemur m. monteiri) in O. crassicaudatus.
