Gasparinisaura (meaning "Gasparini's lizard") is a genus of herbivorous ornithopod dinosaurs from Late Cretaceous Argentina.
The first fossils of Gasparinisaura were in 1992 found in Argentina, near Cinco Saltos in Río Negro Province. The type species, Gasparinisaura cincosaltensis, was named and described in 1996 by Rodolfo Coria and Leonardo Salgado. The generic name honours Argentine palaeontologist Zulma Brandoni de Gasparini. The specific name refers to Cinco Saltos.

Their species were never confirmed; they could also be Oryctodromeus; Gasparinisaura's earlier cousin or generic lizards (however the second conclusion is very unlikely). They could also be herbivorous Compsognathus.
