Mojoceratops is a genus of ceratopsian dinosaur. It is a chasmosaurine ceratopsid which lived during the Late Cretaceous period, in what is now Western Canada. The genus is based on skulls first assigned to species of the contemporary ceratopsid Chasmosaurus. First given a unique name in 2010, later research has suggested that Mojoceratops is a synonym of Chasmosaurus as originally thought.
