This is a wonderful example of a Salix cockerelli (Willow) leaf from the Green River Formation of Utah. This Willow leaf is complete and still has the petiole tightly attached. The lance-shaped leaf exhibits the finely-toothed margins in outstanding fashion, and the venation of the leaf is easily seen. The fossil leaf has great color and contrast and is well presented on the natural slab of shale. This is a beautiful specimen of a Weeping Willow leaf from the Eocene.
