Aletopelta coombsi was an ankylosaurian ornithischian dinosaur whose fossils were found in Southern California. Etymologically, the generic name is composed of the Greek terms aletes and pelte, meaning, respectively "wandering" and "shield". Aletopelta is diagnosed as an ankylosaurid mainly based on the shape and arrangement of its osteoderm armor, which is closer in form to ankylosaurids than to nodosaurids.
