"Plate 80, Figure 1"

"Leaf asymmetric, inequilateral, obscurely lobed on the larger side, about 6 centimeters in length by 7 centimeters in width, sharply triangular-dentate except near the rounded, obliquely truncate, slightly cordate base; nervation craspedodrome throughout to the marginal dentitions; midrib flexuous, curved toward the smaller side secondary nerves four or five on each side of the midrib, opposite or subopposite, upper ones branched or forked near their extremities, basal pair conspicuously unequal, the longer one with five subparallel branches on the lower side and three, irregularly spaced, on the upper side, the shorter branch with similar but weaker branches."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 104)

"This leaf, unquestionably representing a well-defined species of Vitis, appears to be markedly different from any heretofore described Cretaceous species of the genus, and more like the general type of certain Tertiary species, such as Vitis rotundifolia Newberry (1898) (pl. 53, fig. 3 [Not V. rotundifolia Michaux, 1803] [=Vitis alaskana Cockerell, Am. Mus. Nat. Hist. Bll., vol. 24, p. 103, 1908.]) from Admiralty Inlet, Alaska."
