"Plate 38, Figure 3"

"Leaf narrowly ovate-lanceolate, about 12 centimeters in length by 4.5 centimeters in maximum width, rounded at the base, triangular-denticulate except in the extreme lower part; nervation pinnate, craspedodrome; secondary nerves irregularly disposed, diverging from the midrib at acute angles, the upper ones occasionally branched above or merged into connecting tertiary nerves with fine nervilles terminating in the denticulations."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 70)

"This leaf is difficult to assign generically, but its general features are suggestive of Quercus juglandina Heer (1883) (p. 89, pl. 71, fig. 19; pl. 74, figs. 4 - 7; pl. 76, fig. 12; pl. 102, fig. 9a) from the Tertiary beds of the Atane region, Greenland, which differs from our specimen, however, in having a somewhat more tapering base and generally coarser dentition; but they apparently belong together, in the same generic category."
