Diceratosaurus brevirostris
Diceratosaurus brevirostris is an extinct genus of nectridian lepospondyl within the family Keraterpetontidae that lived in the Late Carboniferous Pennsylvanian and lasted from approximately 323.2 million years ago to 298.9 million years ago.

Diceratosaurus fossils were first described by Edward Drinker Cope in 1874.

The species D. brevirostris is well known from Jefferson County, Ohio, and approximately 50 specimens have been collected from the Ohio Diamond Coal Mine. The mine was situated in the village of Linton, which fell into darkness shortly after operations were completed and the mine closed in 1921.
