14" Fossil Leaf Plate - Green River Formation, Utah

This is an interesting fossil leaf plate from the Green River Formation, Utah. It contains three poplar (Populus) leaves, the largest, 3.8". In addition there is a 3.5" willow (Salix)leaf and an unidentified fruit, located on the primary vein of the largest poplar leaf. There are a number of other plant inclusions in this specimen that have not been identified.

While the Green River Formation is best know for its fish fossils, other areas produce incredible plant fossils.

Comes with an acrylic stand.

A note on Green River leaf identifications. There are over 60 described leaf bearing plants from this formation, many of which have very similar leaves. We've done our best to provide identifications based on the resources available to us, but are not paleobotany experts, so we can not guarantee that all will be 100% correct.
