Incongruelaps is a genus of elapid snake from the Encore site of Riversleigh World Heritage Fossil Property. The holotype (QM F42691) is a Late Miocene approximately 10 million years old, mid trunk vertebrae. Other disarticulated vertebrae, right maxilla and a fragment of the left dentary are presumed to be a single individual based on size comparisons, but a chance accumulation of fragment of different unassociated individuals can not be ruled out.
