Dubious Favorite

Acanthopholis, meaning "spiny scales", is somewhat famous, despite being dubious in its distinctions, from time to time.  Unfortunately, the debatable nature of things due to fragmentary remains as well as the 1999 study that determined it to be a nomen dubium. Regardless, it has shown up on websites for information purposes and not in many other places. In fact, toys, books, and even modifications to video games seem to be lacking for Acanthopholis. It is just too bad that there is not much in the popular culture world for this dinosaur.
