Phagidominus (meaning "parasite") was the one of the earliest known indominitid dinosaurs ever to be discovered. Its posture was most similar to that of a Schleromochlus, meaning that the two might be related.

Phagidominus grew to about 1 meter long, and lived in Texas approximately 227 million years ago in the Late Triassic period.
