Crichtonpelta is a genus of ankylosaur from the Late Cretaceous period of China. It is named after Michael Crichton, the author of the famed Jurassic Park novels. When it was determined that Crichtonsaurus was a nomen dubium, one of the two Crichtonsaurus species, C. benxiensis, was split off to form its own species, Crichtonpelta. It was discovered in 2007, but was described in 2014.
