Unusual Multiple Leaf Plate from Colorado
Stock Number  FPCOL26

Name:   Multiple Leaf Plate
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Douglas Pass, Colorado
Size:  Plate is 4.7" X 6.0"

Here is a very unusual plate of fossil leaves from the Green River Formation of Colorado. There are three different leaves on the plate. In the upper left corner of the slab is a rare Caesalpinia pecorae (Divi Divi Tree leaf). The multi-lobed leaf at the bottom of the plate is Macginitiea wyomingensis, a Sycamore Leaf. This leaf has all five lobes preserved with tips intact. This Sycamore leaf still has the petiole attached and exhibits fine detail. There are also two long, linear, grass-like leaves on the plate. The fossils have great color and contrast and are nicely presented on the rectangular plate of shale. This is a very displayable plate of fossil leaves from Colorado.
