Pakisaurus (meaning "Pakistan lizard") is an unofficially named genus of titanosaurian sauropod from the Late Cretaceous of Balochistan, western Pakistan. The type species is proposed to be P. balochistani, and it was mentioned by M. Sadiq Malkani in 2006, based on four tail vertebrae, found in the Maastrichtian-age Vitakri Member of the Pab Formation. Three additional tail vertebrae have been assigned to it. The author erected the family-level name Pakisauridae for Pakisaurus, but it remains to be seen if this family will receive widespread acceptance.
