Lexovisaurus is one of those dinosaur fossils that's exact classification has had scientists disagree for over 100 years. It is agreed that it was first classified as a species of stegosaurian Omsaurus in 1887 from fossils found near Cambridgeshire in the UK. In 1957 Lexovisaurus was assigned to the Stegosauridae. Only a couple of bones exist and one a large spine was placed on the animals shoulder by one scientist on its hip by another and on its tail by a third so until more fossils and evidence is found the debate and discussion will continue.
