Very Colorful Sycamore Leaf from Colorado
Stock Number  S627073

Name:   Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore Leaf)
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Douglas Pass, Colorado
Size:  Leaf is 4.3 inches wide

Here is a very nice fossil leaf. This is Macginitiea wyomingensis, a Sycamore, from the Green River Formation of Colorado. All five lobes of the leaf are easily seen, and the margins are exhibited in wonderful fashion. The venation of the leaf is quite distinct, and a petiole is still tightly attached to the leaf. The dark brown leaf contrasts beautifully with the khaki-colored matrix. The fossil is well showcased on the semi-squared plate of shale. This is a great example of a large Sycamore leaf from Colorado.
