Eocene Age 56 million years ago

It is a Celtis Mccoshii, a Hackberry leaf, from the Eocene of Utah. This lanceolate leaf is well preserved and exhibits fantastic detail. The serrated margins of the leaf are clearly defined, and the venation is wonderfully displayed. A long, thin petiole is still tightly attached to the base of the leaf.  This is a beautiful Hackberry leaf from the Green River Formation. 

Fossil representatives abundant in shales of the early Middle Eocene of the Green River Formation in Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming, and it is clear that the family was an important component of vegetation that surrounded the large lakes in which these shales were deposited.
