Pareiasaurus or Deltavjatia vjatkensis is an extinct genus of anapsid reptile from the Permian period. It was a typical member of its family, the pareiasaurs, which take their name from this genus. Fossils have been found in the Beaufort Group.

Pareiasaurus or Deltavjatia vjatkensis is a large quadruped, about 8.2 ft. long, with elephantine legs, walking in a typically reptilian posture. The skull is broad and the snout short. Its skull had several spine and wart like protrusions.

Originally described as a species by Hartmann-Weinberg in 1933 from a skull, it has since been found to have more early features and a new genus has been erected by Lebedev in 1987. Recently, a complete skeleton of this animal has been found.

Deltavjatia vjatkensis snout is heavily armoured, and bears a horn-like boss. The teeth are equipped with 11 (or possibly 13 or 15) cusps. This is a large animal; the skull is about 50 cm in length. This species might be ancestral to Pareiasaurus peringueyi.

It is represented by a nearly complete skeleton from the Zak River, South Africa. It is distinguished especially by the large quadrato-jugal region inclined far outwards and forwards so that its lower border makes an angle of about 120 degrees with the maxillary border; this cheek bears large bony bosses.
