'''''Mandschurosaurus''''' is a genus of hadrosaurs based on material from the Upper Cretaceous of Belye Kruchi, Manchuria. ''M. amurensis'' is based on a poorly preserved and incomplete skeleton collected by Russian scientists in 1914 from the banks of the Amur River. It was the first dinosaur genus named from China, and an impressive mounted skeleton is on display at the Central Geological and Prospecting Museum in St. Petersburg. However, much of the skeleton is plaster. Regardless, the remains represent a very large hadrosaurid, at least 8 metres in length. There has been some debate regarding the validity of this genus. Brett-Surman (1979) first considered it a ''nomen dubium'', though some later workers have continued to see it as a valid taxon (Chapman et Brett Surman, 1990, for example). Most recently, Horner et al. (2004) listed the type species as a ''nomen dubium''. The holotype material was initially referred to the genus ''"Trachodon"'' (also a ''nomen dubium''), but later reassigned to a new genus by Riabinin (1930).
