If, by "hadrosaur", you are referring to _Hadrosauria_ (which could be defined
as Clade(_Hadrosaurus foulkii_ <- _Iguanodon bernissartensis_)), then my old
site (dinosauricon.com) lists:
41 nomina valida
16 nomina dubia
2 nomina nuda
7 unnamed forms

Which totals 66, but is probably an overestimate, since some of these may be
synonymous (e.g., sexual morphs). I'll be revising this for the new site
(dino.lm.com) some day.
