Abstract

Full reciprocal introgression over a wide hybrid zone demonstrates that M. maurus and tonkeana are conspecific and should be considered as polymorphic sub-species of M. maurus. Comparably diagnosable pelage patterns, distinct alterations in body shape, and greater dermatoglyphic differences suggest that M. togeanus may be a valid species.
