6.3" Exceptional Fossil Sycamore (Platanus) Leaf - Utah

This is an exceptionally nice, 6.3" fossil sycamore (Platanus wyomingensis) from the Green River Formation in Utah. This is one of the best sycamore leaves that I have ever seen. It has dark preservation, is layed out nicely and centered on a large slab of shale. There is a little bit of insect predation around the bottom edge of the leaf. The shale slab is 10 x 9" and about 1 1/2" thick.

Comes with a 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.
