Well, the spelling is clearly wrong.  It is either:
Dinodontosaurus or Deinodontosaurus.

As far as I know, this is not a dinosaur.  However, there were
many groups of reptile-type animals in the Mesozoic and the
latter part of the Paleozoic.  It could be anything from a
therapsid (mammallike reptile) to a protorosaur.
