Here is a beautiful example of an Allophylus flexifolia leaf from the Green River Shale. This large leaf (over six inches long!) is complete and exhibits fine detail. The undulate margins are intact, and the distinct venation of the leaf is easily seen. The short, stout petiole is firmly attached to the leaf. The fossil has great natural color and superb contrast. The leaf is well centered on the rectangular block of matrix. This is a fabulous specimen of an extremely large Allophylus leaf from the Eocene of Utah.
