Large, Bug-Eaten Sycamore Leaf from Utah

Age:  Eocene
Formation:  Green River Formation
Location:  Bonanza, Utah

This is a very unusual fossil leaf. It is a large Macginitiea wyomingensis (Sycamore) Leaf from the Green River Formation of Utah. This leaf has been bug-eaten - almost the entire center lobe has been devoured! The slightly serrated margins of the leaf are easily seen, and the venation is clearly defined. A long petiole is still tightly attached to the base of the leaf. The natural, dark-brown color of the leaf contrasts strikingly with the lighter-colored matrix. The fossil is well centered on the semi-squared plate of shale. This is a textbook specimen of a large Sycamore leaf with major insect damage.
