Platanus nobili, Zizyphoides flabellum and Beringiaphyllum cupaniodes
Paleocene, Ft. Union Formation
Glendive, Montana, USA
In terms of fossils, Montana might be more often thought of as a producer of Dinosaur remnants rather than plants, but the "Big Sky" state has given us this large fossil leaf plate. Two large Sycamore leaves are presented, along with three other fossil leaves, including: two sizable, and unusual, Katsura Tree leaves from the famous Fort Union Formation. The Sycamore leaves feature a red-brown coloration with the largest measuring at 7.5 inches (19.1 cm) from base to tip. The others are smaller, less ornate, and are browner. This plate is, made of sedimentary rock with a subtle gray coloration and featuring an uneven undulating surface.
