Large Lygodium (Climbing Fern) Leaf w/ Zelcova Leaf
Stock Number  FPUBU304

Name:   Lygodium kaulfussii Leaf
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Plate is 6.3 inches tall

Here is an exceptional example of a Lygodium kaulfussii (Climbing Fern) leaf from the Green River Formation of Utah. Living representatives of this plant are true climbers. This distinctly lobed leaf has entire margins and extremely fine venation, which is easily seen on this specimen. The natural coloration of the fossil is just outstanding, and the large leaf contrasts beautifully with the khaki-colored matrix. The leaf is wonderfully showcased on the large, natural plate of shale that also contains a fine Zelcova nervosa (Keaki Tree) Leaf. This is a very displayable Lygodium leaf from the Eocene of Utah.
