The Mexican Howler Monkey ("Alouatta palliata mexicana") is a subspecies of the Mantled Howler Monkey, "A. palliata". It's range includes southeastern Mexico and in Guatemala.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. 50-51 | isbn=978-0-387-25854-6 | year = 2006] The Mexican Howler Monkey is sympatric with the Guatemalan Black Howler, "A. pigra", in Tabasco, Mexico. The Mexican Howler Monkey differs from the Golden-mantled Howler Monkey, "A. palliata palliata", primarily in aspects of skull morphology, and in some differences in pelage. The Golden-mantled Howler's range includes parts of Guatamala and Honduras, and it is not clear if the Mexican and Golden-mantled Howler's ranges currently are in contact.

In 2008, this subspecies was determined to be critically endangered.
