|Scientific Name:||Microcebus mamiratra|
|Species Authority:||Andriantompohavana, Zaonarivelo, Engberg, Randriamampionona, McGuire, Shore <i>et al</i>., 2006|
|Taxonomic Notes:||Olivieri et al. (2006) described the form M. lokobensis also from Nosy Be Island. The type localities of M. lokobensis and M. mamiratra are the same, and the descriptions of the two forms are identical. Since M. mamiratra has priority, it seems best to consider M. lokobensis a synonym pending further investigation.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Data Deficient ver 3.1|
|Reviewer/s:||Mittermeier, R.A. & Rylands, A.B. (Primate Red List Authority)|
Listed as Data Deficient as this species is only recently described, and further information is required to determine the taxonomic validity of this species, its limits of distribution, and its population status. If indeed it is confined to Nosy Be, and there are evident threats, then it probably will require listing in a threatened category.
|Range Description:||Currently believed to be confined to the island of Nosy Bé in north-western Madagascar.|
