Temporal range: Late Triassic
Barberena and Bonaparte, 1975
Therioherpeton is an extinct genus of therapsids based on Therioherpeton cargnini, a small cynodont that lived in the Triassic and was collected in Santa Maria, Santa Maria Formation, the Geopark of Paleorrota, Brazil. It was a small carnivore. For its characteristics (Barberena & Bonaparte, 1975), it was touted as a likely ancestor of mammals.
