Here is a very interesting plant specimen from the Paleocene of North Dakota. The plate contains a fabulous fruiting body of Cyclocarya brownii. The Juglandaceous fruiting body displays fine detail. The samara is very 3-dimensional in the center with the "wings" preserved as white radiating lines. The fossil has excellent color and contrast and is well showcased on the natural matrix plate. This is a very nice specimen of this strange, airborne fruit from the Paleocene.
