  • A. rectori (Anonymous, 1983) (type)
  • A. eisenhardtae Lucas, Hunt, and Spielmann, 2007

Adamanasuchus is an extinct genus of aetosaur. Fossils have been found from several localities from the Chinle Group in Arizona[1] and date back to the Carnian stage of the Late Triassic[2]. The locality from which it was named after also lends its name to the Adamanian land vertebrate faunachron.
