Comments:
Wilson & Reeder, eds. (2005): Comments: All Malagasy lemur families, with the possible exception of Daubentoniidae, form a monophyletic clade (reviewed in Groves, 2001c). As the families within this clade themselves fall into two groups, it is convenient to recognize infraorders as well as superfamilies
