The atom type should not appear in the .pdb file.  If you have added some new 
atom type to the OPLS force field, you need to add its parameters to 
ffnonbonded.itp in order to actually make use of it.

Following this procedure:


allows you to solve this error:


in order to use pdb2gmx to generate the topology.

If you need further help, it would be best to state what you're trying to 
accomplish and what exactly you have done thus far to try to address the problem 
at hand.
