monophyletic clade containing the lemurs and lorisoids is widely accepted, but the name to be used for the clade is not yet agreed upon. The term Lemuriformes is used here since it derives from one popular taxonomy that clumps the
clade of toothcombed primates into one
infraorder and the extinct, non-toothcombed
adapiforms into another, both within the
suborderStrepsirrhini. However, a popular alternative taxonomy places the lorisoids in their own infraorder, Lorisiformes.: 20–21
