Genus Tarsius

Tarsius is a genus of tarsiers native to islands of Southeast Asia. Until recently, all tarsier species were assigned to this genus, but recently two species were split off into two other genera, while other species were described. All members of Tarsius are found on Sulawesi or nearby Indonesian islands.
