Gentilicamelus is an extinct genus of terrestrial herbivore in the family Camelidae, endemic to North America from the mid-Oligocene through Early Miocene 30.8—20.6 mya existing for approximately .
Gentilicamelus was named by Loomis (1936). It was assigned to Camelidae by Loomis (1936) and Carroll (1988).
Four specimens were examined for estimated body mass by M. Mendoza, C. M. Janis, and P. Palmqvist. These specimens were estimated to weigh:
- 52.9 kg (120 lb)
- 77.4 kg (170 lb)
- 64.7 kg (140 lb)
- 43.4 kg (96 lb)
