Dinosaur King

Kentrosaurus is famous for the gradual transition of plates to spikes along its back. Often seen as basal in the stegosaurid family, recently it has been found to be a derived relative of Stegosaurus. Additionally, Kentrosaurus and Centrosaurus had a minor confusion where it was assumed they both had the same name, and they were given new names like "Kentrurosaurus" and "Eucentrosaurus"; however, as the spelling and pronunciation differed, they were not the same name and the renaming was unnecessary and reverted.
