Large Climbing Fern Leaf with Outstanding Color
Stock Number  FPUCF303

Name:   Lygodium kaulfussii Leaf
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Leaf is 3 inches across

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 smooth 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 repaired block of shale. This is a very displayable Lygodium leaf from the Eocene of Utah.
