We all know DK is a gorilla and Diddy is a monkey...but what kind of monkey?

Well, it's been stated, IIRC, that he's a chimpanzee...but with a tail.

Darkness is overrated. We've been trying to tell mankind that since we started this absurd rebellion. The world-hater would say that darkness is easier to sell.

He did have a move called chimpy charge or something I believe, but he's not a chimp. If I had to guess, maybe a Brown Spider Monkey or Squirrel Monkey.

He's a Flying Monkey! Har! Har! Har!

He's based on the Spider Monkey.

^Agreed. Diddy is obviously a spider monkey. Now I wonder what some of the other Kongs are other than Donkey, who is obviously a gorilla.

Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Kid Icarus: Uprising.

I think Kiddy and Chunky are supposed to be Baboons according to instruction booklets (that could explain the usage of clothing to cover their potentially red backsides)
Lanky is an Orangutan
Swanky and Funky are basically retooled Donkey Kongs, so more Gorillas at a guess

Dixie would also be a spider monkey and Tiny? Possibly a chimpanzee?

Diddy is a butt monkey.
