The AEECL's sportive lemur, Antafia sportive lemur or red-shouldered sportive lemur (Lepilemur aeeclis) is a sportive lemur endemic to Madagascar. It has a total length of about 52 to 59 centimeters, of which 24–26 centimeters are tail.[4] AEECL's sportive lemur is found in western Madagascar, living in dry deciduous forests.[4]

The species was named in honor of the Association Européenne pour l'Etude et la Conservation des Lémuriens (A.E.E.C.L.) for its twelve years of support to the research team that discovered it.[3]
