"Viburmum simile Knowlton, in Lee, W. T., and Knowlton, F. H., Geology and paleontology of the Raton Mesa and other regions in Colorado and New Mexico: U. S. Geol. Survey Prof. Paper 101, p. 277, pl. 49, fig. 3, 1917." (Knowlton 1917)



From Hollick (1930) (p. 114)

"The identity of this leaf with Knowlton's species from the Vermejo formation of southeastern Colorado is questioned by reason of its fragmentary condition. It is also suggestive of Viburnum whymperi Heer (1869) (p. 475, pl. 46, fig. 1b) from the Tertiary of Greenland, to which Knowlton (1900) (p. 72, pl. 17, fig. 1; pl. 18, fig. 1; pl. 19, fig. 3) has doubtfully referred several specimens from the Montana group of Wyoming. Viburnum, simile appears to be a valid species, however, and I have but little doubt that if our specimen were perfect its identity with this species would be verified."
