If no rank is listed, the taxon is considered an unranked clade in modern classifications. Ranks may be repeated or presented in the wrong order because authors working on different parts of the classification may disagree about how to rank taxa.

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
E. A. Maleev 1955Translated from Russian: Thecraniumoftheaforedescribedgiantcarnivorousdinosaur from the Nemegt approximates by its dimensions and peculiarities of its structure to the cranium of the largest carnivorous dinosaur Tyrannosaurus rex from the Upper Cretaceous of North America
and excels in its size all the other deinodonts of the family Deinodontidae. It differs from T. rex by its elongated snout and a greater number of maxillary and dentary teeth (Table 1).
The strong elongation of the facial part of the cranium and the greater number of maxillary and dentary teeth show clearly that the new species was somewhat more primitive than T. rex. In the latter we observe a reduction of the facial part of the cranium and decrease in the number of teeth.
K. Carpenter 1992Angular terminates anterior to the surangular fenestra; surangular fenestra proportionally smaller than in Tyrannosaurus rex
K. Carpenter 1992 (Maleevosaurus novojilovi)(Cranial) Maxilary fenestra small; pro-maxillary fenestra not visible laterally; antorbital fenestra proportionally very large, and much longer than high; lacrymal horn moderately developed, not rugose; postorbital not very rugose; lower ramus of maxilla low and slender. (Postcranial) Cervical neural spines tall, not as reduced as in other tyrannosaurids. Acrommion process of scapula virtually non-existant. Ischium has a very pronounced spur-like obturator process, and distally, the shaft curves downward. Metatarsal IV does not overlap metatarsal III at midshaft, nor does metatarsal III have much of an overlap of metatarsal II at midshaft.
