 Taxonomy of the Genus Perodicticus
A representative sample (N=132) of specimens allocated to Perodicticus, representing the entire known geographic range of the genus, were examined and described by dentition, cranium, post-cranium, and pelage.
A single specimen was found that matches the expected description for Perodicticus potto faustus, which is not taken as support for reviving that taxon out of its synonymy with Perodicticus potto edwards.
Previously undescribed features present in the population assigned to the genus Perodicticus have also been found, including a bowed fin on the mesial margin of the lower (caniniform) anterior premolar in most of the specimens conforming to the descriptions for P.

 Potto
Perodicticus is also known as Bosman's Potto, after its supposed discoverer, and in some English-speaking parts of Africa it is called a Softly-softly.
A few closely related species also have "potto" in their name: the two golden potto species (also known as angwantibos) and the False Potto.

 Martin's False Potto (Pseudopotto martini)
Martin's false potto differs in morphology from the potto, Perodicticus potto, in having relatively long upper first premolars, reduced third molar, and a relatively longer tail (Groves, 1998).
Some dispute this species as being a valid new genus and species because its measurements do not differ much from Perodicticus potto (Sarmiento, 1998).
Martin's false potto is found in the country of Cameroon, in west Africa (Schwartz, 1996; cited in Fleagle, 1999).

IngentaConnect Home Range Analysis of Perodicticus potto edwardsi and Sciurochei...
Because the spatial arrangements of nocturnal prosimians are often used to indicate their social systems, it is important to assess the reliability of methods used to analyze ranging patterns.
We compared methods of home range analysis for 2 species of nocturnal prosimians: central pottos (Perodicticus potto edwardsi) and Cross River Allen’s galagos ({Sciurocheirus cameronensis}).

I discovered Harrison through the Frugal Gourmet essay too -- I think that won her a lot of converts.
I saw you have Barbara Grizzuti Harrison's 'An Accidental Autobiography.' That's one of my favourite books ever.
