12.6" Fossil Sycamore (Platanus) & Poplar (Populus) Leaf Plate - Utah

This leaf association plate contains an 8.4" long (including stem) fossil Sycamore (Platanus) leaf, a 4.8" long (including stem) Poplar (Populus) leaf and what appear to be an Oak (Quercus) leaf, collected from the Green River Formation of Utah. Both the Sycamore and Poplar leaf are in great condition and show in-depth primary and secondary venation. There are no repaired cracks through the rock though there appears to be some touchup restoration near the tip of the Sycamore leaf.

Comes with an acrylic/metal display stand.

1 - Platanus wyomingensis (Sycamore)
2 - Populus sp. (Poplar)
3 - Quercus sp.? (Oak)

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.
