Wonderful Ginkgo Leaf With Long Petiole
Stock Number  FPNDG04

Name:   Ginkgo adiantoides
Age:  Paleocene
Formation:  Fort Union Formation
Location:  Almont, North Dakota
Size:  Leaf is 3.5 inches long including petiole.

This is a very aesthetic example of Ginkgo adiantoides from the Paleocene of North Dakota. The fossil leaf is very distinct and preserves fine detail. The palmate venation of the Ginkgo leaf is wonderfully displayed. This specimen has an extremely long petiole attached to the leaf. The off-white color of the leaf contrasts beautifully with the dark brown matrix. The fossil is well centered on the somewhat rounded matrix. This is a very displayable fossil Ginkgo leaf from the Fort Union Formation.
