       Bihariosaurus is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that lived in Europe during the early Cretaceous.‭ ‬However some researchers have pointed out that there are no clearly distinctive features seen in current Bihariosaurus fossils other than what can be commonly seen in other ornithopod genera.‭ ‬Bihariosaurus is noted a being similar to Camptosaurus.
