Plemmyradytes is an extinct genus of dissorophoid temnospondyl from the early Permian (early Asselian stage). It is an amphibamid which lived in what is now the Richardson County, Nebraska. It is known from the holotype DMNH 49903, and many other partial elements of the skull, postcrania, humerus and left ilium. It was found in the lower part of the Eskridge Formation near Humboldt. It was first named by Adam K. Huttenlocker, Jason D. Pardo and Bryan J. Small in 2007 and the type species is Plemmyradytes shintoni.[1]
