Mandschurosaurus is registered as a genus of hadrosaur that lived in what is now China during the late Cretaceous. Unfortunately the first individual ever found for this genus is so poorly preserved that most palaeontologists today regard the genus as a nomen dubium due to the difficulty of assigning further remains to the original holotype fossils. In addition to this, one species, M. mongoliensis was renamed as a distinct genus called Gilmoreosaurus in 1979, and another species, M. laosensis is also now considered dubious.
