EXTINCTIONS CHOICE - Beautiful Sycamore Leaf
Stock Number  FPFPW703

Name:   Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore Leaf)
Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah
Size:  Leaf is 5.2" 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, slightly-serrated margins of the leaf are easily seen, and the venation is clearly defined. A 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 showcased on the large, semi-squared plate of shale. This is a very collectible specimen of a fabulous Sycamore leaf from the Eocene.
