project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 024

LYCORHINUS ANGUSTIDENS
"Constricted Toothed Wolf Snout"
Haughton, 1924
Length: 1.2m (4ft)
Weight: 22kg (50 lbs.)
Location: Cape Province, South Africa
Era: Hettangian age, lower Jurassic (197 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Ornithischia
Heterodontosauridae

Notes:
When the first fragmentary remains of Lycorhinus were discovered, they displayed long canine teeth in addition to small chisel like teeth. Because of this, it was originally thought to be a type of cynodont. It wasn't until the later discovery of the closely related Heterodontosaurus was it realized that it was in fact a dinosaur.

Synonyms:
Lanasaurus scalpridens Gow, 1975
