       Palaeohatteria is a genus of sphenacodont pelycosaur that lived in Germany during the early Permian.‭ ‬So far however Palaeohatteria is only known by immature individuals.‭ ‬At times Palaeohatteria has been considered to be synonymous with the genus Haptodus,‭ ‬however some researchers continue to list Palaeohatteria as a distinct genus.
