The Collared Mangabey also known as the Red-capped Mangabey, White-collared Mangabey or Cherry-crowned mangabey is a species of primate in the Cercopithecidae family. It is found in forests, especially near water, from western Nigeria, east and south through Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea, to Gabon.

It is threatened by habitat loss.
