NotaSunting

  1. ^ The genus name Prosimia was declared unavailable by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature in 1998.[3]
  2. ^ Type species was designated as Catta mococo (= Lemur catta Linnaeus, 1758).[3]
  3. ^ Type species was designated as Maki mococo (= Lemur catta Linnaeus, 1758).[3][4]
  4. ^ The synonym Mococo is sometimes omitted because it was technically a vernacular term for the genus Prosimia.[4] René Primevère Lesson named the type species for this genus as Prosimia catta (= Lemur catta Linnaeus, 1758) in the same year (1878).[3]
  5. ^ Muirhead (1819) credited the name Maki mococo to Anselme Gaëtan Desmarest (1817), although it was actually used as a vernacular name.[3][4]
