Temporal range: Late Triassic, Carnian
Centemodon (meaning "point tooth") is an extinct genus of basal phytosaur from the Late Triassic Period. It lived in what is now Pennsylvania, United States. It is classified as a nomen dubium. It was found in the Red Sandstone Formation near the Schuyklill River. Centemodon may have been related to Suchoprion.
Sometime during the Bone Wars, a palaeontologist known as Dr. Leo (surname unknown) discovered several fossil fragmentary teeth that later became the Centemodon holotype. When Leo described the fragments, he was unsure of what they belonged to. Leo did not name the fragments. They were named in 1856 by I. Lea.
