Many other teeth have been found and catalogued, but they are not listed due to space constraints and the fact that naming only teeth to a certain genus often gets one into trouble and leads to confusion. Nothing so far has conclusively proven that all of the specimens of giant tyrannosaurs from Asia do not belong to Tarbosaurus bataar, but studies are always being done and new finds are constantly being made.
