We integrate information from the fossil record, morphology, behavior and molecular studies to provide a current overview of lorisoid evolution. [...] Key Result Plesiopithecus teras is a Nycticebus-sized, nocturnal prosimian from the late Eocene, Fayum, Egypt, that shares cranial specializations with lorisoids, but it also retains primitive features (e.g. four premolars) and has unique specializations of the anterior teeth excluding it from direct lorisiform ancestry.Expand
