"Dryophyllum bruneri Ward, Synopsis of the flora of the Laramie group: U. S. Geol. Survey Sixth Ann. Rept., p. 551, pl. 37, figs. 6-8, 1886 (Ward 1886); Types of the Laramie flora: U. S. Geol. Survey Bull. 37, p. 27, pl. 10, figs. 5-8, 1887 (Ward 1887)."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 70)

"There can be but little doubt of the identity of our specimen with Ward's species from the Upper Cretaceous (Mesaverde formation) of Wyoming, the only difference being that the Alaska specimen is somewhat larger.

The same species is also described and figured by Knowlton (1917) (p. 259, pl. 53, fig. 5), from the Vermejo formation of southeastern Colorado."
