Ahmanson's sportive lemur (Lepilemur ahmansonorum), or the Tsiombikibo sportive lemur, is a sportive lemur endemic to Madagascar. It is a relatively small sportive lemur with a total length of about 47 to 54 centimeters, of which 23-25 centimeters are tail.[2] Wright's sportive lemur is found in western Madagascar, living in dry forests .[2]

Originally named L. ahmansoni, the name was found to be incorrectly formed and was corrected to L. ahmansonorum in 2009.[3]
