This is a wonderful plate containing two Salix cockerelli (Willow) leaves from the Green River Formation of Utah. Both of these willow leaves are complete and still have the petioles tightly attached. The lance-shaped leaves exhibit the finely-toothed margins in outstanding fashion, and the venation of the leaves is easily seen. The fossil leaves have great color and contrast and are well presented on the natural slab of shale. This is a beautiful display plate of two Willow leaves from the Eocene.
