Neotrirachodon is listed as a genus of gomphodont, cynodont therapsid that lived in Russia during the Permian. If this analysis is correct then Neotrirachodon is the first gomphosont cynodont to be discovered in Russia. Neotrirachodon was originally described as a species of Antecosuchus, and at times the genus has been considered by some to be synonymous with it.
