Hubbard's sportive lemur (Lepilemur hubbardorum), or the Zombitse sportive lemur, is a sportive lemur endemic to Madagascar. It has total length of about 51 to 59 cm (20 to 23 in), of which 23–25 cm (9.1–9.8 in) are tail.[4] Hubbard's sportive lemur is found in southwestern Madagascar, living in dry transitional forests.[4]

Originally named L. hubbardi, the name was found to be incorrectly formed and was corrected to L. hubbardorum in 2009.[5]
