      @Maguari Out of curiosity, and given the fact I will be visiting Plzen and Jihlava imminently, do you have any further information obtained in the last 7 years regarding your suggestion that some/all of the Grey Mouse Lemur at these collections represent taxa other than M. murinus?

      @TeaLovingDave Yes - I believe they are now believed to be M. murinus, so as you were!

      @Maguari Fair enough ;) I'm still going to get a good handful of prosimian lifeticks so I cannot complain!

      @Maguari - given recent developments at Plzen regarding the reclassification of the vast majority of their Grey Mouse Lemurs ( as discussed in the linked thread) it rather sounds like the rumours you heard at Jihlava were indeed accurate, but merely didn't get the species correct ;)

      Ganzhorn's mouse lemur, Microcebus ganzhorni | ZooChat

      In which case, it is possible Jihlava also holds Microcebus ganzhorni - presuming their stock has not been supplemented by extra imports since which have muddied the genepool.

      Are the Goodman's both on and off-exhibit or solely off now?

      Solely offshow; believe they have not been on-display since 2012 or thereabouts.
