Rubeostratilia is an extinct genus of amphibamid temnospondyl from the Early Permian of Texas. It is known from a single skull. This genus was named by Helene Bourget and Jason S. Anderson in 2011, and the type species is Rubeostratilia texensis. Rubeostratilia is closely related to the genus Pasawioops from Richard's Spur, Oklahoma.

Rubeostratilia has a rounded, elongate skull typical of amphibamids. Among its distinguishing characteristics are a sickle-shaped postfrontal bone, a short alary process (a ridge on the premaxilla), and a pterygoid bone on the palate that touches only the ectopterygoid.
