Geoffroy's spider monkey, ''Ateles geoffroyi'', also known as black-handed spider monkey, is a species of spider monkey, a type of New World monkey, from Central America, parts of Mexico and possibly a small portion of Colombia. There are at least five subspecies. Some primatologists classify the black-headed spider monkey, ''A. fusciceps'', found in Panama, Colombia and Ecuador as the same species as Geoffroy's spider monkey.
