Jingshanosaurus is a genus of sauropodomorph dinosaur that lived in China during the Jurassic. However, there has been past speculation that Jingshanosaurus might be synonymous with another genus named Yunnanosaurus. Jingshanosaurus should not be confused with the similarly named titanosaur Jiangshanosaurus.
