Pachyarmatherium leiseyi is in a genus of extinct large armadillo like cingulates found in North and South America from the Pliocene and Pleistocene epoches. It was present from 4.9 million years ago to 11,000 years ago, existing for about 4,889 million years.

Pachyarmatherium was named by Downing and White (1995). Its type is P. leiseyi. It was assigned to Dasypodoidea by Downing and White (1995), and tentatively to Glyptodontidae by McKenna and Bell (1997).

A cladistic analysis performed by de O. Porpino et al. (2009) led to the conclusion that Pachyarmatherium is a sister group to a clade consisting of Glyptodontidae and Pampatheriidae. Oliveira et al. (2013) suggest that Pachyarmatherium is a possible dasypodid.
