EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Fabulous Sycamore Leaf
Stock Number  FPUPW53

Name:   Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore Leaf)
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Leaf is 4.1 inches long including petiole

This is a top quality fossil leaf. It is a beautiful Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore) leaf from the Green River Formation of Utah. This leaf is wonderfully complete - all five lobes of the leaf are present and beautifully displayed. The entire, serrated margins of the leaf are easily seen, and the venation is clearly defined. An extremely long, complete petiole is still tightly attached to the base of the leaf. The natural, dark-brown color of the leaf contrasts strikingly with the lighter-colored matrix. The fossil is well centered on the squared plate of shale. This is a nearly-perfect specimen of a fabulous Sycamore leaf from the Eocene.
