Vitali F. 2015. Obrium damgaardi sp. n. (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), the first fossil species of the genus Obrium Dejean from the Baltic amber. Baltic J. Coleopterol. 15(2): 165 - 169.

A new fossil cerambycid from Baltic amber, Obrium damgaardi sp. n. (Cerambycinae, Obriini) is described and compared with extant congeners. The species is characterised by regularly punctured elytra, relatively large head and, possibly, uniform colouration. The first character is probably archaic, being rare among current species.

KeyWords : Coleoptera, Cerambycidae, fossil, Baltic amber, new species.
