A team of scientists has identified a new species of monkey in central Africa that had been known to the locals simply as lesula, a medium-sized, slender animal that looks similar to an owl-faced monkey that was already known to scientists.
"Something that was thought to be abundant can turn out to be rare," Kityo said, referring to the previous confusion between lesula and a close relative. "In a sense, it's a nice find."
Robert Kityo, a zoology professor at Uganda's Makerere University, said the discovery is proof that Africa's vast jungles are teeming with species yet to be discovered.
