Stenopelix (meaning "narrow pelvis") is a genus of small ornithischian dinosaur from the Early Cretaceous of Germany. It was perhaps a basal ceratopsian from the Barremian Stage of the Cretaceous period, sometime between 130 and 125 million years ago. The genus is based on a partial skeleton lacking the skull, and its classification is based on characteristics of the hips.
