Rusingoryx is a poorly known extinct alcelaphine bovid, that lived on the plains of Kenya (Rusinga Island) during the Pleistocene. It contains only one species - R. atopocranio.

Rusingoryx is known for its strange pointed nose with a large nasal dome. It’s height was 120-150 cm and weight - 130-250 kg.

The first specimens were described in 1983, having been taken from a site called Bovid Hill on Rusinga Island in Lake Victoria. Butchered bones found in 2011 with stone tools suggested that they had been killed by humans.
