Eopneumatosuchus is an extinct genus of basal crocodyliform.
Fossils have been found from two localities within the Kayenta
Formation of Arizona. Both localities are around 20 miles southeast
of the Grand Canyon and in close proximity to one another. The
localities probably date back to the Early Jurassic, most likely
during the Sinemurian stage. Eopneumatosuchus was initially
considered to be a protosuchian, first proposed when the genus was
named in 1980. However, this classification was later questioned on
the basis of several features of the holotype material, and as a
result it is no longer considered to be within Protosuchia.
Particular features of the posterior part of the cranium, the only
material associated with the genus, suggest that Eopneumatosuchus
may have close relations with Early Jurassic teleosaurs.
