Agiesuchus is a genus of reptile from the Late Triassic. It was a crurotarsan archosaur. It was a toothed hypocarnivore. Parker and Nesbitt 2013, reported on a partial maxilla, dentary and prearticular, along with associated pubis and ischium (PEFO 34865). They matched their new find to prior Poposaurus specimens (Fig. 2), such as YPM 057100. A study published by Baron et al. (2018) found this specimen referrable to a new genus and species: Agiesuchus pefoae.
