A new species and genus of polypore fungus beetle, Elasontagius dorbnickensis gen. et sp. nov., is described and illustrated, representing the second formally described species of Tetratomidae from Eocene Baltic amber. This new extinct polypore fungus beetle belongs to the subfamily Hallomeninae and clearly differs from other representatives in absence of pronotal basal impressions and strongly transverse scutellum.
