Plate 73, Figure 4b; Plate 74, Figure 5"

"Leaflets normally attached to a common petiole, 1.3 to 2.75 centimeters in length by 1.3 to 1.9 centimeters in width across the middle, entire, elliptical, tapering about equally to each end; apex apiculate; base wedge-shaped; nervation simply pinnate; midrib straight; secondary nerves leaving the midrib at various angles of divergence, curving upward and continuing close to the margin, where they thin out and disappear."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 97)

"The specimen represented by Figure 4b on Plate 73 includes, apparently, a terminal and one lateral leaflet of a trifoliolate leaf, such as is characteristic of several genera in the Leguminosae. The terminal leaflet appears to be slightly the broader.

It is possible that these leave may be specifically identical with some one or another of the several dscribed species of Leguminosites but certain of these species are inadequately figured, and several identifications of the species are open to question, hence I have thought it advisable to designate our specimens by a new specific name."
