Several genera that may have been synonymized with Iguanodon on the basis of 
similarities with I. atherfieldensis include: Heterosaurus, Therosaurus, 
Vectisaurus, and Sphenospondylus. The material on which these genera are 
based has to be reexamined, lest the genera prove to be senior synonyms of 
any new genus created for I. atherfieldensis. Likewise, the type species of 
these genera have to be reexamined as possible senior synonyms of I. 
atherfieldensis. It's a big mess that will take some time to rectify, I think.
