    I forgot the english name for it, in portuguese is called "vespa", is a 
bitter insect (has a point on back that hurts) and they build their houses 
with this hard material. You can take it off scrapping but I doubt you will 
save this board, mostly anything animal that glues is corrosive, so I doubt 
there are integral traces on bottom of it. Oh, I just remember...WASP is 
their name. They are not good to mess up with, they bite and it hurts. If 
this is a replaceable unit, just throw it away and put some poison on it :o)
