Campylognathoides ("curved jaw", Strand 1928) is a genus of pterosaur, discovered in the Wurttemberg Lias deposits (dated to the early Toarcian age) of Germany; this first specimen consisted however only of wing fragments. Further better preserved specimens were found in the Holzmaden shale: basing on these specimens Felix Plieninger erected a new genus.
