Lemurophile Hypothesis

Hypothesis of primate phylogeny that considers the plesiadapiforms to be the sister group of the omomyids and tarsiers (all three groups comprising the Plesatarsiiformes), and the lemurs, lorises, and adapids to form a sister group of the anthropoids (together comprising the Simiolemuriformes).
