"Alouatta coibensis coibensis" is a subspecies of the Coiba Island Howler Monkey, "A. coibensis". This subspecies lives only on Coiba Island and Jicaron, off the Pacific coast of Panama.cite book | author = Rylands, Groves, Mittermeier, Cortes-Ortiz & Hines | editor = Estrada, A.; Garber, P.A.; Pavelka, M.S.M.; Luecke, L. | chapter = Taxonomy and Distributions of Mesoamerican Primates | title = New Perspectives in the Study of Mesoamerican Primates| pages = p. 53-54 | isbn=978-0-387-25854-6 | year = 2006] "A. c. coibensis" is smaller than other Central American howler monkeys and has duller pelage than the Azuero Howler Monkey, "Alouatta coibensis trabeata".

Although generally considered a subspecies of "A. coibensis", there is some debate within the scientific community as to whether "A. coibensis" itself is a valid species. If not, "A. c. coibensis" and "A. c. trabeata" would both be considered subspecies of the Mantled Howler, "A. palliata". In that case their trinomial names would be "A. p. coibensis" and "A. p. trabeata", respectively.
