PoA, Owl Post Again.
'Your father is alive in you Harry, and shows himself most plainly when you have need of him. How else could you produce that particular Patronus? Prongs rode again last night.'
It took a moment for Harry to realise what Dumbledore had said.
'Sirius told me all about how they became Animagi last night,' said Dumbledore, smiling. 'An extraordinary achievement - not least, keeping it quiet from me. And then I remembered the unusual form your Patronus took, when it charged Mr Malfoy down at the Quidditch match against Ravenclaw. So you did see your father last night, Harry - you found him inside yourself.'

Lupin also only mentions James' Animagus form.

Harry told Lupin what happened. When he had finished, Lupin was smiling again.
'Yes, your father was always a stag when he transformed,' he said. 'You guessed right...that's why we called him Prongs.
