The Daraina sportive lemur (Lepilemur milanoii), is a species of sportive lemur endemic to Madagascar. It is a relatively small sportive lemur with a total length of about 49 to 56 centimeters, of which 24-27 centimeters are tail.

Lepilemur milanoii is found in northern Madagascar, living in dry deciduous, gallery and semi-evergreen forests. Its known distribution range covers the Loky-Manambato region and the species has surprisingly also been reported to occur in sympatry with Lepilemur ankaranensis in the Andrafiamena protected area, both areas being managed by the NGO Fanamby. Daraina sportive lemur has been reported to occur at high densities in the forest fragments of Solaniampilana and Bekaraoka.
