Lesser Bushbaby

Can anyone confirm which race / species occurs at Akagera National Park in Rwanda?

My brief research at first made me think Dusky / Matschie's Galago Galago matschiei but that should, be confined to the Albertine Rift.

Mohol Bushbaby Galago moholi is also suspected to occur in Rwanda.



Thanks

Andy,

From what I can gather these species are present in Rwanda, not sure of any further location detail, but it may help.


Demidoff’s dwarf galago (Galagoides demidovii)
Thomas Dwarf Galago (Galagoides thomasi)
Northern Lesser galago (Galago senegalensis)
Spectacled lesser galago (Galago matschiei)

So for Akagera, it should be Northern lesser galago, based on habitat. The others are forest species.
