PaleoDB taxon number: 259858
There are also formatted pdf versions of this article bearing the name Ptinus (Gynopterus) balticus. The situation is not clear, but Ptinus balticus is a homonym of a species named by Yablokov-Khnzorian and Karapetyan 1991, so I assume that the homonymy may have been discovered during review or production.
