Identification

Microcebus jollyae has a head-body length of 13 cm, a tail length of just over 12 cm, a total length of 25 cm, and an average adult weight of just over 60 g (based on measurements of three adults from one site) (Louis et al., 2008). The dorsal coat is a uniform reddish- brown on both the body and the head. There are small white patches on the rostrum and under the mandible, the latter blending with the gray ventral coat (Louis et al., 2006a).
