       Hulsanpes is a dinosaur genus that is so far only known from a single partial foot.‭ ‬Over time Hulsanpes has been described as everything from a primitive bird to a dromaeosaur,‭ ‬but in modern times all that most researchers will go as far as say is that Hulsanpes is some kind of maniraptoran dinosaur.‭ ‬New fossil discovered and/or research are required to clarify the matter.
