EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Very Large Sycamore Leaf
Stock Number  FPUPW75

Name:   Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore Leaf)
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Leaf is over 6 inches tall!
Price:  SOLD

Here is a fabulous example of a very large fossil leaf. This is Macginitiea wyomingensis, a Sycamore, from the Green River Formation of Utah. All five lobes of the leaf are easily seen, with the very tip of one lobe being bug-eaten! The venation of the leaf is quite distinct, and a long petiole is still tightly attached to the leaf. The dark brown leaf contrasts beautifully with the khaki-colored matrix. The fossil is well presented on the large, natural plate of shale that also has a large textbook Snout Beetle preserved (a rare association!). This is a very collectible example of a huge Sycamore leaf and Beetle from the Green River Formation.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
