"Cornus forchhammeri Heer, Die fossile Flora Gronlands, erster Theil: Flora fossilis arctica, vol, 6, pt, 2, p, 85, pI. 44, fig, 13, 1882." (Heer 1882)



From Hollick (1930) (p. 112)

"Our leaves appear to be slightly less rounded or ovate than Heer's species from the Atane beds of Greenland; and the same may be said of a leaf referred to the species by Berry (1916) (p. 885, pl. 82, fig. 1) from the Magothy formation of Maryland, which differs also in having more numerous secondary nerves than appear in Heer's figure and in ours; but that all are referable to one and the same species appears to be reasonably certain."
