Eckfeldattagenus eocenicus gen. et sp. nov. is described from the Middle Eocene Eckfeld Maar (Germany) on the basis of completely preserved specimens, representing one of the rare reports of fossil skin beetles (Coleoptera: Dermestidae: Attageninae). The new genus and species differs from all other Dermestidae by the very flat body form and pronotum, and its unique structure of the antennal club and the wrinkled elytral surface. •
