Levnesovia is a genus of hadrosauroid dinosaur that lived in Uzbekistan during the early part of the late Cretaceous. Hadrosauroids were the descendants of the iguanodonts that were common in the late Jurassic/earliest Cretaceous, and the precursors of the hadrosaurids that were common during the final ten-fifteen million years of the Cretaceous.
