Aigialosaurus is an extinct genus of mosasauroid within the family Aigialosauridae. Its fossils have been found in Europe. It contains two species, Aigialosaurus dalmaticus and Aigialosaurus bucchichi. Aigialosaurs were some of the oldest and most primitive ancestors of mosasaur and were closely related to monitor lizards.
