This is a very pretty specimen of Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore Leaf) from the Eocene of Utah. It is difficult to obtain Macginitiea leaves that are as complete as this specimen. This leaf is complete with all five lobes present. The venation on this specimen is very strongly pronounced. The slightly serrated borders are easily seen, and a LONG petiole is still attached to the leaf. The fossil has nice dark color and good contrast. The leaf is well centered on a squared block of shale. This is a very fine example of a fossil Sycamore leaf.
