       Because the description of Jubbulpuria is based upon two incomplete tail vertebrae‭ (‬with a third later added‭) ‬Jubbulpuria is widely considered to be a nomen dubium because the described material is not sufficient enough to identify any later or more complete remains.‭ ‬However Jubbulpuria is considered to at least represent a theropod of the Ceratosauria.‭ ‬Other dinosaurs from the Lameta Formation include the abelisaur Rajasaurus and the sauropod Isisaurus amongst others.
