[erlang-questions] untyped records

I'm getting an untyped record from a web form submission.  io_lib:format("~p", [MyRecord]) displays:


Now, I know if I define a record myself, I can access fields using the format:  Name#type.field

but in this case the type of record is unknown.

MyRecord#struct.desc returns a 'record struct undefined' error at compile time.

Can I access the fields of this record without deconstructing it?
