A new megalosaurid, Megalosaurus hesperis sp. nov., is described from the Upper Inferior Oolite (Bajocian) of Dorset; the type material was previously assigned to M. bucklandi. The holotype of M. nethercombensis von Huene, 1923, from the Middle Inferior Oolite of the same county, is redescribed; von Huene's proposal of a new genus (Magnosaurus 1932) for this species was unjustified. Sarcosaurus andrewsi is transferred to the genus Megalosaurus.
