Eryopoidea are a taxon of late Carboniferous and Permian temnospondyli amphibians, known from North America and Europe. Carroll includes no less than ten families, but Yates and Warren replace this with a cladistic approach and include only two Permian families, the Eryopidae and Zatrachydidae. They define the Eryopoidea as all Euskelia in which the choana are relatively rounded and the iliac blade vertical. A similar definition but without the Euskelia is provided by Laurin and Steyer.
