{Nesocyrtoma hadratum Perez-Gelabert 1999: 31   [lapsus calami].

Type Material Examined. HOLOTYPE: Nesocyrtosoma   ; hadratum   ; Doyen and Poinar; HOLOTYPE. ( GOPC).

Diagnosis. This species can be distinguished from all other fossil species by its stouter, more convex body, and the pronotum continuously and strongly narrowed from base to apex.

Description. See Doyen and Poinar (1994).

Notes. This species is not redescribed because the fossil specimen is intersected by a fracture which opened during study and was repaired. The head is bent forward and nearly impossible to see; the pigment of the cuticle of the fossil is divided into irregular polygonal fragments obscuring surface detail, and the venter, including mouthparts, is obscured by a reflective layer of air and by clouded regions in the amber, thus making the specimen impossible to describe in any further detail than already described by Doyen and Poinar (1994).
