Very Rare Distylium eocenica Leaf from Utah
Stock Number  FPUDI303

Name:   Distylium eocenica Leaf
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Leaf is 1.6 inches long

This is a rare Eocene leaf. It is Distylium eocenica from the Green River Formation of Utah. This broad leaf appears to have been chewed on by a bug at the tip of the leaf. The venation of the leaf is very clearly defined, and a petiole is still tightly attached (not fully exposed). The leaf has excellent color and contrast and is well showcased on the natural plate of shale. This is a very nice example of this unusual leaf from Utah - only the third and probably the last one we will have.

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.
