As for where I got the name:

and specifically-

Apparently vertebrae and ribs were also found and another potential name for
this species is "Tsurumimus".  Both "Grusimimus" and Haprymimus were found
in Huren Dukh, so maybe they come from the same formation (Shinekhudukskaya
Svita, Aptian-Albian).
