Alekseev V.I. 2017. First record of Cathartosilvanus Grouvelle (Coleoptera: Silvanidae) from Baltic amber with description of a new species. Baltic J. Coleopterol. 17 (1): 43 - 48.

The new taxon is characterised by comparatively large body size, pronotum elongate, with weakly produced anterior angles and obtuse basal angles, prosternal process not channeled, and elytra without tuberculate setiferous punctures.

KeyWords : Tertiary, Eocene, silvanid beetle, fossil
