Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Asia

Fukuisaurus is one of the few dinosaurs discovered in Japan. This island nation was once connected to the huge Asian continent. However, there are not many sites in Japan where the layers of exposed rock are of the right age to contain fossils, and those that are the right age don't seem to have many fossils. This small plant-eater seems to be related to the Iguanodon 

Known from fragmentary cranial and post-cranial remains, this dinosaur has not yet been adequately described. At present its name is not an accepted genus in the paleontological community.
