Panaves (meaning "all birds" in Latin) is a clade of advanced archosaurs coined by Jacques Gauthier in 1986. He defined it to represent the largest and most inclusive clade of archosaurs containing Aves (birds, anchored on Vultur gryphus) but not Crocodylia (anchored on Crocodylus niloticus).

Gauthier referred Aves, all other Dinosauria, all Pterosauria, and a variety of Triassic archosaurs including Lagosuchus and Scleromochlus to this group.
