Owenodon is another one of those “used to be Iguanodon” taxa from Durlston Bay, Dorset, England. It dates back to the Berriasian age of the Early Cretaceous, about 143 million years ago, and is known from a lower jaw that was then assigned to Iguanodon. The jaw itself was damaged during preparation, and then freed from rock via acid bath, so that tells you something about the general state of the fossil. It was found to be more derived than Camptosaurus, but less so than Iguanodon, and thus a new genus was born.
