[D] Chiayusaurus asianensis

Chiayusaurus lacustris (Bohlin, 1953) > Chiayusaurus asianensis (Lee, Yang & Park, 1997)
This genus may be a senior synonym of Mamenchisaurus (D. A. Russell & Zheng , 1994), but this is difficult to establish because the type species is based on a single tooth. According to Barrett (2002) this species (based on a tooth) possesses no automorphic features with the type tooth of Chiayusaurus lacustris and differs from it in several features.
