Head length (mean ± SD) of live adult Tarsius dentatus (n = 24), T. lariang (n = 36), and T. wallacei (n = 10). Different letters (a, b) denote highly significant differences between taxa (ANOVA, Tukey-HSD post hoc test, p < 0.005) when populations of Tarsius wallacei at Batusuya (Tinombo form, n = 4) and Uwemanje (Uwemanje form, n = 6) are treated as separate units
However, the species comprises two geographical variants that are
significantly different in size (Table I, Fig. 3).
Head length The frequency distribution of head lengths within
the new species is bimodal, with a significant difference between
the 2 isolated forms (t-test, t = –3.646, p = 0.007, Table I,
lariang whereas tarsiers of the Tinombo form are characterized by
significantly shorter heads than the other 2 species (ANOVA,
F(3,66) = 11.681, p < 0.001, Fig. 3)..
