Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in North America

Bugenasaura was a small, fast plant-eater that lived near the end of the age of the dinosaurs. It is known only from just a few bones and some scientists think that the skull doesn't belong to the rest of the bones with which it was found. It is considered to be an early member of the Hypsilophodon  family based on the fact that some of its features are of the type found on the first members of this family.

There are some who believe the skull for Bugenasaura does not belong to the other fossil remains attributed to this specimen. It has been suggested that these other remains belong to Stygimoloch.
