Evgeny/Evgenii Aleksandrovich Maleev  (Russian: Евгений Александрович Малеев, pronounced [jɪˈvɡenʲɪj ɐlʲɪˈksandrəvʲɪtɕ mɐˈlʲeɪf]; 25 February 1915 – 12 April 1966) was a Soviet paleontologist who named the ankylosaur Talarurus; the theropods Tarbosaurus and Therizinosaurus; and the family Therizinosauridae.
Maleev did research on Tarbosaurus brains by cutting open fossilized braincases with a diamond saw. Modern researchers use computer tomography scans and 3D reconstruction software to visualize the interior of dinosaur endocrania, thus eliminating the need to damage valuable specimens.
