7.1" Eocene Fossil Sycamore (Platanus) Leaf - Utah

This is a 7.1" long (including stem) fossil Sycamore (Platanus) leaf from the Green River Formation of Utah. It is in excellent condition and shows in-depth venation of the leaf. This specimen has undergone no repair or restoration and portions of the leaf appear to have been eaten away by insects prior to fossilization.

Comes with an acrylic/metal display stand.

While the Green River Formation is best know for its fish fossils, other areas produce incredible plant fossils such as this.

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