Alioramus ('different branch') is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous period of Asia. The type and only species, A. remotus, is known from a partial skull and three metatarsals recovered from Mongolian sediments which were deposited in a humid floodplain between 70 to 65 million years ago. These remains were named and described by Russian paleontologist Sergei Kurzanov in 1976. Its relationships to other tyrannosaurid genera are unknown, but some experts believe Alioramus is closely related to the contemporaneous Tarbosaurus, or is a juvenile of that genus.
