Nope.  Just Hu's (1964) original material of C. tashuikensis and "C."
maortuensis, Riabinin's (1914) unillustrated metatarsal very questionably
assigned to the genus (C? sibiricus), and Dong's (1979) segnosaurian
hindlimb of "C." zheziangensis (= Nanshiungosaurus?).

Not in any paper I can think of.
Chilantaisaurus tashuikensis is a spinosauroid/megalosauroid (Sereno, 1998;
Chure, 2002; Rauhut, 2001).
Chilantaisaurus? sibiricus is described and illustrated too poorly to
subjectively determine its relationships (Chure, 2002).
"Chilantaisaurus" maortuensis is a basal coelurosaur (Chure, 2002; Rauhut,
"Chilantaisaurus" zheziangensis is a segnosaur, quite possibly belonging to
the Nanshiungosaurus holotype.
