"Plate 41, Figure 4"

"Leaf apparently cordate, about 5 centimeters in length by 5 centimeters in maximum width; margin coarsely triangular-crenate-dentate, terminating above in a curved, wedge-shaped, acuminate apex; nervation apparently palmate-flabellate, craspedodrome, consisting of a main median nerve with obscurely defined secondary nerves springing from its upper part, and three dichotomously forked lateral primaries on each side."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 77-78)

"It is with some hesitation that I have included this leaf in the genus Castaliites, as its fragmentary condition renders satisfactory comparison impossible. In general appearance it is suggestive of the problematic genus and species Protorrhipis buchi Andrae (1855) (p. 36, pl. 8, fig. 1) from the Jurassic of Hungary; but this reference is to be regarded merely as a suggestion, in view of the fragmentary condition of our specimen."
