"Plate 76, Figures 1-4"

"Leaves oblong-ovate, about 14 centimeters in length by 5.5 centimeters in width, rounded at the base, margin denticulate; nervation pinnate; secondary nerves numerous, irregularly disposed, subparallel, diverging from the midrib at acute angles, curving slightly upward, connecting with the tertiary nervation near the margin, forming a network of quadrate areolae with fine nervilles extending into and terminating in the denticulations; tertiary nervation more or less bent or flexuous, forming quadrate or polygonal areolae."



From Hollick (1930) (p.99)

"These leaves were apparently rugose, with coarse, prominent nervation. They resemble Celastrus pterospermoides Ward (1886; 1887) (p. 555, pl. 53, figs. 3 - 6; p. 80. pl. 35, figs 2 - 6) from the Fort Union formation of Montana, but are much finer in both nervation and dentition."
