Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Asia

Barsboldia was a large, plant-eating duck-billed dinosaur that lived in Asia. This is the only member of this dinosaur family known from Asia. The huge size of this duckbill indicates that the Gobi Desert was once a much different environment with lots of plants and water.

Some scientists don't consider Barsboldia to be a valid genus. They argue that the distinction between this specimen and Hypacrosaurus are age related and not indicative of a new genus.
