Drescheratherium

Drescheratherium is an extinct genus of mammal from the Late Jurassic (Kimmeridgian) Camadas de Guimarota of Leiria, Portugal. It is represented by fairly complete upper jaws with teeth.[1] It bears elongated upper canines, though not to the extent another dryolestoid, Cronopio, does.[2]
