Lycorhinus angustidens is a heterodontosaurid ornithischian dinosaur hailing from the Early Jurassic strata of the Eliot Formation located in the Cape Province, South Africa. The fossil remains consist in dentaries and maxillae hence the characters mentioned by the name that Haughton attributed to them in 1924, where the generic name means "wolf snout", as it was at first misidentified as a cynodont, and the specific descriptor means "constricted teeth". Lycorhinus, including the remains described by Gow in 1975 as Lanasaurus, is a small herbivore dinosaur despite long canines it sported in its jaws; due to this unique characteristic L. angustidens is very clearly allied to Heterodontosaurus.
