Canis edwardii (Edward's wolf) is an extinct species of genus Canis which was endemic to most of North America from the Late Blancan stage of the Pliocene epoch through to the Irvingtonian stage of the Pleistocene epoch, living 2.3 Mya--300,000 years ago, existing for approximately 2 million years.
It was contemporaneous with the dire wolf (125,000--9,440 years ago), Canis lepophagus (10.3--1.8 Ma), Armbruster's wolf (1.8 Mya--300,000 years ago), Canis rufus (1-2 Ma-present), and the gray wolf (2.5 Ma--present).
