I'd say the ones marked with an asterisk are valid, Chuanjiesaurus and
Kunmingosaurus are possibly valid once they are described in more detail,
while Tianzhenosaurus and Shanxia are controversial.  Siamosaurus and
Genyodectes are believably indeterminate, while Kangnasaurus is supposed to
be as well (though I have no personal opinion).
