Temporal range: Early-Middle Triassic, Induan–Anisian
Theledectinae is an extinct subfamily of parareptiles within the family Procolophonidae. Theledectines existed in South Africa, China and Australia during the Early-Middle Triassic period (Induan to Anisian stages). Theledectinae was named by Juan Carlos Cisneros in 2008 to include the genus Theledectes, and the species "Eumetabolodon" dongshengensis. "E." dongshengensis represents a new genus from China, and the Arcadia procolophonid is an unnamed genus and species from Australia. Cladistically, it is defined as "All taxa more closely related to Theledectes perforatus (Gow, 1977a) than to Procolophon trigoniceps Owen, 1876".
