    I posted this recently on another thread, but it's worth repeating here
    New species of dwarf lemur described
    The Montagne d'Ambre Dwarf Lemur (Cheirogaleus andysabini), from the Amber Mountain National Park and the surrounding area in northern Madagascar, was first identified in 2005 but only now formally described:

    Ref. Lei, R. et al. (2015). "A New Species in the Genus Cheirogaleus (Cheirogaleidae)". Primate Conservation 29 (2): 1–12.

    This is 'only' a subspecies, but for a new subspecies of cetacean it doesn't seem to have attracted much attention:
    Taiwan Humpback Dolphin Sousa chinensis taiwanensis

    Ref. 'Diagnosability and description of a new subspecies of Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin, Sousa chinensis (Osbeck, 1765), from the Taiwan Strait.' John Y Wang, Shih Chu Yang & Samuel K Hung.
