1.1" Fossil Rose Leaf With Cranefly - Green River Formation, Utah

This is a 1.1" fossil rose (Rosa) leaf and a .8" cranefly (Tipulidae) from the Green River Formation in Utah. The leaf is in good condition and shows the primary vein; the cranefly shows very detailed preservation, especially under magnification.

While the Green River Formation is best know for its fish fossils from around Kemmerer, other areas of the Formation produce incredible plant and insect fossils.

This specimen includes an acrylic display stand.
