Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Althou the monophyletic relationship atween lemurs an lorisoids is widely acceptit, thair clade name is nae. The term lemuriform is uised here acause it derives frae ane popular taxonomy that clumps the clade o tuithcombed primates intae ane infraorder an the extinct, non-tuithcombed adapiforms intae anither, baith within the suborder Strepsirrhini.[1][2] Houever, anither popular alternative taxonomy places the lorisoids in their ain infraorder, Lorisiformes.[3]
