Vampyronassa rhodanica is an extinct genus of vampyromorph cephalopods known from around 20 fossils from the Lower Callovian (165-164 Ma) of La Voulte-sur-Rhone, Ardeche, France.

This taxon differs from the modern vampire squid in having longer first dorsal arms, a larger hyponome, and a more elongated mantle.
