Since its naming in 1915, the Kangnasaurus genus of dinosaur has often been treated as dubious, mostly because the holotype of this dinosaur is actually a tooth. Other hind limb remains were also attributed to the genus however, and these remains do actually seem to be distinct enough for some to consider Kangnasaurus to be a distinct genus of dinosaur.
