5.35" Plate with Fossil Leaf and Seed Pods - Montana

These are two fossil leaves from the Fort Union Formation near Glendive, Montana. The plate consists of a Zizyphoides flabellum leaf and a Nyssidium arcticum seed pod pair. The dark orange/brown preservation contrasts well against the shale, and many of the details in the leaves can be seen in good relief. There may be some touchups to the surface of the leaves where pieces of them flaked onto the negative during collection.

This specimen includes an acrylic display stand.

#1 - Zizyphoides flabellum (2.0" long)
