Harvey's Red Duiker (Cephalophus harveyi) is one of 19 species of duiker found in Tanzania and scattered through Kenya, southern Somalia, and, possibly, central Ethiopia.

Harvey's Duikers are roughly 40 centimetres tall at the shoulder and weigh around 15 kilogrammes, on average. They have a mostly chestnut coat, but their legs and face are black.

Harvey's Duikers live in mountain and lowland forest, where they eat leaves, twigs, fruit, insects, birds eggs, and carrion. Although this duiker is not endangered, it is dependent on protected forestland. As of 2008, this species is a Least concern.
