The white-faced saki , also known as the Guianan saki and the golden-faced saki, is a species of saki monkey, a type of New World monkey, found in Brazil, French Guiana, Guyana, Suriname and Venezuela. This species lives in the understory and lower canopy of the forest, feeding mostly on fruits, but also eating nuts, seeds, and insects.

A formerly recognized subspecies of this monkey, ''P. p. chrysocephala'', was elevated to full species status as ''P. chrysocephala'' in 2014.
