Eoabelisaurus was a basal abelisaurid theropod dinosaur from South America. It was the oldest known abelisaurid, as it lived during the Mid Jurassic Period, about 170 million years ago. It grew to a size of 6.5 metres (21 feet) in length.


Eoabelisaurus mefi has recently been named in 2012. It was found in the Cañadón Asfalto Formation, making it contemporary of the megalosaurid Piatnitzkysaurus. The remains consist of a nearly complete skeleton, with a skull of a subadult or fully grown adult individual.
