"Plate 75, Figure 3"

"Leaf or leaflet irregular in shape, asymmetric, expanded in the middle, 2.5 centimeters in length by 1.8 centimeters in width; entire; with a blunt, wedge-shaped apex and a base rounded on one side and concave-truncate on the other; midrib sinuous; secondary nerves irregularly pinnate, subtending various angles with the midrib, camptodrome close to the margin."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 98)

"This leaf or leaflet is referred to the genus Guajacum on account of its striking resemblance to the living G. breynii as figured by Ettingshausen (1861) (p. 78, fig. 2). It is apparently a perfect leaf, although the irregular outline and the erratic disposition of the nervation give it an abnormal appearance, as if its chnracteristic features might be due to distortion."
