Named after the Russian palaeontologist Evgenii Aleksandrovich who actually found the holotype material in 1952, Maleevus is today considered to be a dubious genus of dinosaur. This is because it is based upon only a small amount of fossil material which is actually similar to another genus of ankylosaur from the Bayan Shireh Formation, Telarurus.
