Nice Plate with Willow and Zelkova Leaves Preserved
Stock Number  FPUMU27

Name:   Willow and Zelkova Leaves
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Willow leaf is 3.3 inches long

Here is a nice plate of fossil leaves from the Eocene of Utah. There are two different leaves beautifully displayed on this plate. On the left side of the slab is a large example of a Salix cockerelli, a willow leaf. To the right of the leaf is a complete Zelkova leaf. The leaves have excellent detail - the venation is clearly defined and both leaves still have the petioles attached. The leaves have great color and contrast and are well positioned on the rectangular plate of shale. This is a very displayable plate of two different types of leaves from the Green River Formation.
