Reconstruction of the described last month heterodontosaurid Pegomastax africanus
. It lived in South Africa, during the Early Jurassic epoch. The configuration and distribution of integumentary structures is speculative.
The holotype of this animal is a partialy preserved lower jaw. The rest of the animal was reconstructed as it follows: skull is based on that of it's close relative Manidens condorensis
; body - after Tianyulong confuciusi
and Heterodontosaurus tucki
