Notohypsilophodon (meaning "southern Hypsilophodon") is a genus of euornithopod dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous of Argentina. It was described as the only "hypsilophodont" known from South America, although this assessment is not universally supported, and Gasparinisaura is now believed to have been a basal euornithopod as well.
