Triconolestes is an extinct genus of Late Jurassic eutriconodont mammal from the Morrison Formation, present in stratigraphic zones 4.[1] Known from only a single molar, it is a small mammal typically considered an amphilestid.[2][3] However, it has also been compared to Argentoconodon,[2] which has been considered a volaticothere related to gliding mammals such as Volaticotherium and Ichthyoconodon.[4][5]
