Juramaia is an extinct genus of very basal eutherian mammal from the Late Jurassic Oxfordian stage deposits of western Liaoning, China; it is a small shrew-like mammal of body length approximately 70–100 mm Juramaia is known from the holotype BMNH PM1343, an articulated and nearly complete skeleton including incomplete skull preserved with full dentition

It was collected in the Daxigou site, Jianchang, from the Tiaojishan Formation dated at about 160 million years ago It was first named by Zhe-Xi Luo, Chong-Xi Yuan, Qing-Jin Meng and Qiang Ji in 2011 and the type species is Juramaia sinensis
The discovery of Juramaia provides new insight into the evolution of placental mammals by showing that their lineage diverged from that of the marsupials 35 million years earlier than previously thought Furthermore, its discovery fills gaps in the fossil record and helps to calibrate modern, DNA-based methods of dating the evolution Based on climbing adaptations found in the forelimb bones, it has been suggested that the basal stock of Eutheria was arboreal, in a manner resembling that of modern rats
