  • 1989) further argued that colugos (aka flying lemurs, or dermopterans) were also part of the megabat-primate clade, and are essentially late-surviving relics which resembled the common ancestor of this group [Sunda flying lemur Galeopterus variegatus (traditionally Cynocephalus variegatus ) shown below, from wikipedia.

  • tarsier
  • It is somewhat like today's prosimians--the lemur, loris or bush baby, he added, but is perhaps most akin to the modern tarsier, a rat-like tree-dweller thought to occupy the intermediate stage between lower primates and anthropoids. (washingtonpost.com)
  • Still, he said, the connection between the new primate and the tarsier "is not very strong. (washingtonpost.com)

  • relatives
  • Initially basing his conclusions on retinotectal organization (viz, the way in which data from the retina is processed in the brain), Pettigrew (1986) argued that megabats (the group that includes fruit bats like the one shown above) are not close relatives of microbats (the mostly small, mostly insectivorous bats that mostly use echolocation), but that they're actually flying primates, of a sort (read on).
