This is a 11.3" wide leaf fossil plate from the Green River Formation of Uintah County, Utah.

An unidentified leaf showing signs of insect predation is also present on the rock.

Comes with an acrylic and metal display stand.

A note on Green River leaf identifications. There are over 60 described leaf bearing plants from this formation, many of which have very similar leaves. We've done our best to provide identifications based on the resources available to us, but are not paleobotany experts, so we can not guarantee that all will be 100% correct.
