Pygmy slow loris for GAN
It's around time that pygmy slow loris had the final push towards GA/FA, it's looked pretty good for the last year but I think just needs a few last tweaks to pass a GAN. Sasata, Maky, and Ucucha are the main contributors to the article so it'd be great if one/all of you nominate the article, and I don't mind doing any work to help it along. I'm just going through page numbers, refs, and a bit of copyediting. I'll post things on Talk:Pygmy slow loris that I can't give page numbers for or don't understand.

- I'd be glad to nominate it once we fill in the missing page numbers. Feel free to copy edit all you want. – Maky « talk » 00:31, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Does anyone have access to papers from International Journal of Primatology or Folia Primatologica? I need to get the final couple of page numbers for the pygmy slow loris article. Cheers, Jack (talk) 12:19, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Classification of Gorillas
On the Wiki Page for Primates there is a flow chart for Primates (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primate.) This chart marks a seperation between the subfamily Homininae (Chimps and Humans) and the subfamily Gorillinae (Gorillas). However, on the page for Hominidae it classisfies all three genera (Homo, Gorilla, Pan) under the subfamily Homininae, not making mention of the subfamily of Gorillinae. Which is correct?
I just wanted to alert you that there is a WikiProject proposal about something related to you project. Here is the link. Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Proposals/Humanity buffbills7701 21:47, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
tapetum lucidum in Lemuridae
The Lemuridae page has the sentence below, which is unclear, and I think incorrect. According to Fleagle's Primate Adaptation & Evolution, 3rd edition, p 19, lemurs have a tapetum lucidum.
I think the following sentence should be revised to say that lemurs have a tapetum lucidum.
"Unlike most other lemurs, all but one species of lemurid (the Ring-tailed Lemur) lack a tapetum lucidum, a reflective layer in the eye that improves night vision."
