Mittermeier's mouse lemur (Microcebus mittermeieri) is a species of mouse lemur known only from Anjanaharibe-Sud Special Reserve in Madagascar. The species is named in honor of primatologist Russell Mittermeier, who is President of Conservation International.
Mittermeier's mouse lemur is the smallest of the east coast mouse lemurs. Its body is light reddish-brown to rust with orange tints at the base of its limbs. The belly is whitish-brown and there is a distinctive white patch on the snout, past the level of the eyes. The tail tip is black.
The finding was announced June 21, 2006 at the Conservation International Global Symposium in Antananarivo, Madagascar, along with the discovery of Jolly's mouse lemur Microcebus jollyae and Simmons' mouse lemur Microcebus simmonsi as separate species. These new species were also officially announced in a paper in the International Journal of Primatology.
