How do I delete a "Custom List" (template) in Sharepoint

I created a template of a list in Sharepoint so I could create another list off of it. I saved the template with the data and now I want to delete that template. I do not see an option to delete anything out of the "Custom Lists". Does anyone know where I can delete this?

    Please follow this article.  I believe the area you are looking for can be found under the "List Template Gallery"

    "   1.  On the Site Actions menu Site Actions menu, click Site Settings.

           Note   On a site for which the Site Actions menu is customized, point to Site Settings, and then click the settings that you want to view.
       2. In the Galleries column, click List templates.

           Note   This option appears only to users who have the Manage Lists permission. Site owners have this permission by default.

          The List Template Gallery page appears.
       3. In the Edit column, click Edit Document Properties for the list template that you want to delete.
       4. Click Delete Item, and then click OK to confirm.

          2.   Click on List Template's  Edit column.

           3.   Delete Item click.
