You could deal with this example using list comprehensions:

[ R || R={process_info, {, PidX, _}} <- MyList, PidX==Pid ]

... although this example isn't actually a list of "records" as such.  
If you really did have a list of records (proper Erlang record with  
lots of # characters in the code to prove it) then you could say  
something like this:

[ R || R=#process_info{pid=PidX} <- MyList, PidX==Pid ]
