We, humans, did not evolve from monkeys. Only creatards and other ignorant people make that false claim. There is no claim in evolutionary biology that our species, or other humans, evolved from monkeys, indiscriminately or from a particular monkey species, known or unknown, extant or extinct.
We share a common ancestor with the Bonobo and Chimpanzee. No one doubts that ancestor would have looked more like a modern non-human ape than a modern human. So, we evolved from another ape species and not a monkey one.
Human evolution has taken us out of the trees and made us a bipedal great ape. This has freed up our hands and that has enabled us to evolve in a unique way. We have lost the skill of rapidly climbing trees and moving through the canopy. We have, however, developed other skills in our evolution. We are as well adapted to our way of life as any simian species is to its.
