Diegocanis is an extinct genus of cynodont from the Late Triassic of Argentina. The type species, Diegocanis elegans, was named in 2013 from fossils found in the Ischigualasto Formation that date back to the Carnian or Norian stage. Diegocanis was classified within a new family of probainognathian cynodonts called Ecteniniidae, along with the genera Ecteninion and Trucidocynodon.
