Therochelonia is a group of dicynodont therapsids. The group was named by British paleontologist Harry Seeley in 1894 and fell into disuse in the following century. Therochelonia was redefined as a node-based clade in 2009. It is defined as the last common ancestor of Cistecephalus microrhinus and Dicynodon lacerticeps, and all of its descendants. Below is a simplified cladogram from Kammerer et al. (2011) showing the phylogenetic placement of Therochelonia:

Dicynodontia 

Eodicynodon




Pylaecephalidae




Eumantellidae




Endothiodontidae


 Therochelonia 
 Emydopoidea 

Emydopidae

Myosauridae




 Bidentalia 
 Cryptodontia

Geikiidae




 Dicynodontoidea 

"Dicynodon"




Lystrosauridae


 Kannemeyeriiformes 

Shansiodontidae



Kannemeyeriidae



Stahleckeriidae



Dinodontosauridae
