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.
