Not a lot is known about Qingxiusaurus beyond that the type fossils seem to have come from a titanosaur. Only a few bones of the anterior skeleton and fore limbs are known, making a total size of the dinosaur difficult to establish with certainty. In addition to this the location of the fossil site has not been more accurately dated than some point during the late Cretaceous.
