We revise the taxonomy of the primate family Tarsiidae. We classify extant tarsiers in 3 genera—Tarsius, Cephalopachus, and Carlito—each of which originated in the Miocene, or earlier, and each of which is allopatrically distributed within a distinct biogeographic region: Sulawesi, Sundaland, and Greater Mindanao, respectively. Within the genus Tarsius, formerly regarded as a single species, Tarsius spectrum, we recognize 8 allopatric and parapatric species, 9 if the inclusion of pumilus is… 
Small, odd and old: The mysterious Tarsius pumilus is the most basal Sulawesi tarsier
TLDR
The results indicate that T. pumilus is not an aberrant form of a lowland tarsier, but in fact, the most basal of all Sulawesi tarsiers.
Molecular Phylogenetics and Chronometrics of Tarsiidae Based on 12S mtDNA Haplotypes: Evidence for Miocene Origins of Crown Tarsiers and Numerous Species within the Sulawesian Clade
TLDR
This work reports new mitochondrial DNA sequence data from tarsiers sampled from several populations, including the extreme northeast and southwest of the range of the Tarsius tarsier species complex, the most extensive sampling ever reported for this taxon, and produces the first ever molecular chronometric analysis of Tarsiidae.
Identifying genetic relationships among tarsier populations in the islands of Bunaken National Park and mainland Sulawesi
TLDR
Bayesian phylogenetic analyses revealed that island populations are genetically identical in all 5 genes, and formed a clade separated from the mainland ones, which provides information for tarsier conservation, advances the understanding of biogeography of Sulawesi, and contributes to Indonesian awareness of biodiversity.
Remarkable ancient divergences amongst neglected lorisiform primates
TLDR
The results obtained in this study suggest that lorisiform diversity remains substantially underestimated and that previously unnoticed cryptic diversity might be present within many lineages, thus urgently requiring a comprehensive taxonomic revision of this primate group.
(Habitat Characteristic of Buton Tarsier (Tarsius Sp.) based on Sleeping Sites in Lambusango Forest Southeast Sulawesi)
Tarsier is a nocturnal insectivore primates endemic to Sulawesi including Buton Island. Buton tarsier is only occurrence on the island and its likely status as a distinct species make it more
Searching for the Haplorrhine Heterotherm: Field and Laboratory Data of Free-Ranging Tarsiers
TLDR
The potential for heterothermy in a primate closely related to the Strepsirrhini and the concern for the vulnerability of C. bancanus to future temperature increases associated with global warming are explored.
Populasi dan Karakteristik Habitat Tarsius (Cephalopachus bancanus borneanus) di Punggualas, Taman Nasional Sebangau
Tarsier (Cephalopachus bancanus borneanus) is one of the endemic primates in Kalimantan. IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) has established the
Distribution and characteristics of the Makassar tarsius Tarsius fuscus fischer, 1804 sleeping nest in the tropical primary and secondary forests of South Sulawesi
Tarsius fuscus, whose distribution is limited to the southern part of South Sulawesi, Indonesia, is threatened by poaching and habitat loss, with the latter leading to the disappearance of its

The History and Mystery of the Mountain Tarsier, Tarsius pumilus
TLDR
Fossil and biogeographic evidence are consistent with the hypothesis that T. pumilus is the sister-taxon to all other extant tarsier species, and it is argued that "mountain tarsiers" is a more apt common name than previously suggested.
The identity of Tarsius pumilus, a pygmy species endemic to the montane mossy forests of central Sulawesi. American Museum novitates ; no. 2867
In 1917, Henry C. Raven obtained a small-bodied tarsier from upper montane rain forest in the mountains of Central Sulawesi. Miller and Hollister (192 lb) designated the specimen as holotype of

Systematics of tarsiers and lorises
TLDR
The taxonomic findings of this study confirm the distinctness of Sulawesi in contrast to a Sundaland/southern Philippines link; the separation of the Indochinese and Sundaic faunal subregions (Nycticebus); and the uniqueness of the Sri Lankan “wet zone” (Loris).
Tarsius tumpara: A New Tarsier Species from Siau Island, North Sulawesi
TLDR
A new, critically endangered species of tarsier is described from the remote island of Siau, North Sulawesi, based on distinguishing characteristics of the tail tuft, pelage coloration, skull, and vocalizations and genetic evidence indicates that its probable sister species, T. sangirensis, is a relatively ancient clade.
Tarsiers : past, present, and future
TLDR
This new volume presents alternative and contrasting perspectives on the most debated questions that have arisen in tarsier studies and brings together perspectives from anatomical, behavioral, genetic, and conservation studies in this new and exciting addition to the understanding of primate evolution.
Taxonomic History of the Tarsiers, Evidence for the Origins of Buffon's Tarsier and the Fate of Tarsius spectrum Pallas, 1778
TLDR
A survey of the history of tarsier taxonomy indicates that Tarsius tarsiers Erxleben, 1777 is a senior subjective synonym of T. spectrum Pallas, 1778, and Buffon’s tarsiere, recently rediscovered, is identified as being eastern in origin.
Geographical Variation in Duet Songs of Sulawesi Tarsiers: Evidence for New Cryptic Species in South and Southeast Sulawesi
TLDR
Qualitative characteristics of duet songs of both sexes, analysis of frequency and temporal parameters, and multivariate statistics show 4 distinct vocal forms that predict the existence of 4 new species in south and southeast Sulawesi.
The Rediscovery of Buffon’s Tarsier
TLDR
It is argued that, though there is some room for doubt, in all probability this important species still exists.
