Genera

Edmontosaurini are a tribe of saurolophine hadrosaurs that lived in the Northern Hemisphere during the Late Cretaceous period. It currently contains Edmontosaurus (from Canada), Ugrunaaluk (from Alaska, U.S.), Shantungosaurus and Laiyangosaurus (from Shandong, China), and Kamuysaurus (from Japan), though Anatosaurus might be a distinct genus.[2] Kerberosaurus and Kundurosaurus from Russia could also be members though are more likely saurolophins.[3][4]
