Two Fossil Leaves (Planera and Rhus)- Green River Formation, Utah

 
This is 2 well preserved fossil leaves from the Green River Formation, Uintah County, Utah. The . large leaf (Rhus) is 2.6" and the smaller (Planera) is 2.1". The dark color of the fossil stands out nicely against the gray stone. There is a third leaf that is possibly allophylum but there is not enough detail to determine identification with any certainty. Rhus are sumacs and Planera are waterelm. This specimen has a repaired crack.

While this formation is best known for well preserved fossil fish found in Wyoming, other sections of the formation contain a very diverse insect fauna.

Comes with an acrylic stand.
