Fulgurotherium is a little known genus of Australian dinosaur that is also known from very little fossil material; at the time of writing, only a fragment of a femur. This femur seems to match up small ornithopod dinosaurs that range about one to one and a half meters long in size, but this figure is highly speculative. Because of the severe lack of fossils, Fulgurotherium is usually regarded as a Nomen dubium.
