Podocarpus parlatorei (Parlatore's Podocarp) is a species of Podocarpus, native to Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.

It is a medium-sized to large evergreen tree. The leaves are 5–12 cm long, with a blunt apex.

It has been treated as a synonym of Podocarpus curvifolius Carrière by some authors (Dallimore & Jackson 1966), but that name is no longer regarded as identifiable (Farjon 1998).
