Auroraceratops, meaning "dawn horned face", is a genus of basal neoceratopsian dinosaur, from the Early Cretaceous (Aptian age) of north central China and South Korea. The etymology of the generic name refers to its status as an early ceratopsian and also to Dawn Dodson, wife of Peter Dodson, one of the palaeontologists who described it.
