Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia) Fossils - Montana
These are multiple Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood) fossils from the Muddy Creek Formation of Beaver Head County, Montana. The longest frond is 2.05" long. The Metasequoia genus was considered extinct until a living population was discovered in China in 1941. This makes the dawn redwood a classic example of a living fossil.
