Fossil Leaf Plate (Lygodium And Salix) - Green River Formation, Utah

This is a fossil leaf plate from the Green River Formation, Utah. It contains at least two climbing ferns leaves (Lygodium) and at least one willow leaf (Salix). The willow leaf does not have enough detail to determine the species.

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

Comes with an acrylic stand.
