Ajkaceratops (pronounced "oi-ka-se-ra-tops") is a genus of ceratopsian dinosaur described in 2010. It lived in the Cretaceous period in what is now Europe, in what was back then the Tethyan archipelago. It is a ceratopsian, and is beaked. Ceratops means "horned face" in Greek.

The generic name, Ajkaceratops, honors Ajka, a town in Hungary where the fossils where found.
