Ostromia is a genus of anchiornithid theropod dinosaur from the Late Jurassic of Germany. The genus contains a single species, O. crassipes, named by Christian Foth and Oliver Rauhut in 2017. It was originally described as the "Haarlem specimen" of Archaeopteryx, until it was recognized as being distinct from Archaeopteryx and being more closely related to the Chinese Anchiornis.
