    According to the "reported as decayed" list at OIG, Cosmos 2372 (#26538
    = 00 56 A) decayed on 2001 April 20.
    
    The final elset I have for this is:
    Cosmos 2372      6.0  3.0  0.0  3.5 d   34       235 x 180 km
    1 26538U 00056A   01110.15270395  .00934731  74535-5  26840-3 0  6626
    2 26538  64.7360 150.2827 0041390 101.8560 326.6671 16.24566769 33172
    
    If it had been allowed to decay naturally from this orbit, it would have
    come down about April 26.
    
    SpaceCom has also just catalogued an associated fast-decaying debris
    object as
    Cosmos 2372 deb H                                271 x 133 km
    1 26748U 00056H   01111.22883176  .65433394  68645-5  20510-2 0    25
    2 26748  64.6236 146.9433 0105370 111.4648 249.7822 16.26492226    56
    which may already be down as I type this.
