Lamplughsaura is a genus of saurischian dinosaur from the Sinemurian-age (Early Jurassic) Dharmaram Formation of India, dating from between 196 and 190 million years ago. The type and only species is L. dharmaramensis. It is known from several partial skeletons of a large quadrupedal animal up to 10 meters (33 ft) long, and was either a basal sauropod or, less likely, a more basal sauropodomorph.

It was named after Pamela Lamplugh, founder of the Indian Statistical Institute.
