Adamanasuchus is an extinct genus of aetosaur. Fossils have been found from several localities from the Chinle Group in Arizona[1] and date back to the late Carnian stage of the Late Triassic.[2] The locality from which it was named after also lends its name to the Adamanian LVF (land vertebrate faunachron).
