There are four subspecies of chimpanzee:

  1. Pan troglodytes verus, the western chimpanzee, found in Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Libera, the Ivory Coast, and Ghana;
  2. Pan troglodytes ellioti, found in Nigeria and Cameroon;
  3. Pan troglodytes troglodytes, the central chimpanzee, which is found in Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, the Rep. Congo, and DR Congo;
  4. Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii, the eastern chimpanzee, native to the Burundi, Central African Republic, South Sudan, DR Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia.

Occasionally the colloquial term "chimp" is used for the whole genus Pan, which consists of the chimpanzee Pan troglodytes, and the bonobo or pygmy chimpanzee, Pan paniscus. The bonobo is native to the DR Congo, and lives south of the Congo River; chimpanzees are extant only north of the Congo River.
