Youngosuchus is an extinct genus of archosauriform from the Middle Triassic of China. The type species is Y. sinensis. Y. sinensis was first described in 1973 as a new species of the erythrosuchid Vjushkovia. In 1985, it was reassigned as its own genus of rauisuchid. Some more recent studies support the original classification of Youngosuchus sinensis as an erythrosuchid, but others still classify it as a rauisuchian.
