Candelaria is an extinct genus of owenettid parareptile. It was the first procolomorph discovered in the geopark of Paleorrota, in the town of Candelária, by Llewellyn Ivor Price in 1946. It was about 40 centimetres (16 in) long and lived during the Ladinian in the Middle Triassic, about 235 million years ago.
