Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. In zoögeog., a supposed former faunal area of the globe, corresponding to some extent to the geographical distribution of the lemurs, and characterized by the abundance and variety of those animals inhabiting it. The existence of any such region or continent is hypothetical, being inferred from, or held to account for, the present peculiar geographical distribution of the lemurs.
- In some editions of Cuvier's system, a subdivision of the Chiropoda (which comprised Bimana and Quadrumana) by which the lemurs, including Chiromys, are distinguished collectively from monkeys and man. With some little alteration, the division corresponds to the modern suborder Prosimiæ of the order Primates; but the term Lemuria is scarcely in use in this sense. See
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. A hypothetical land, or continent, supposed by some to have existed formerly in the Indian Ocean, of which Madagascar is a remnant.
