Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2008
Date Assessed: 2008-06-30
Assessor/s: Hoffmann, M., De Jong, Y. & Butynski, T.M.
Reviewer/s: Mittermeier, R.A. & Rylands, A.B. (Primate Red List Authority)
Justification:
Listed as Data Deficient as this subspecies is only recently described, and is known from a single specimen collected in 1938 on Mt Kenya. While much of the moist montane forest that remains below 2300 m on Mount Kenya is degraded to varying degrees and continues to be exploited by people, P. potto can persist in secondary moist montane forest. In the absence of further information, including on the status of forms possibly present in the southern reaches of the Aberdares, this taxon is provisionally assessed as Data Deficient.
