Agudotherium is an extinct genus of probainognathian cynodonts from the Late Triassic Candelária Formation of the Paraná Basin in southern Brazil. The genus contains one species, Agudotherium gassenae. A. gassenae is known from three specimens, all consisting of partial lower jaws.

Etymology

The generic name Agudotherium comes from the municipality of Agudo, Rio Grande do Sul, where the fossils were discovered, and the Greek word thērion (θηρίον), meaning "beast".
