Abstract: Paratypothorax is a Late Triassic aetosaur known from Germany, Greenland, North Africa and the American Southwest. The few records in Germany are from the Stubensandstein, whereas the American recordshave a much longer stratigraphic range. The genus currently is monospecific, with the most complete specimens(which consist only of armor plates and vertebrae) assignable to P. andressorum. Paratypothorax records are few, not stratigraphically dense and range in age from Adamanian through Revueltian.
