"Plate 24, Figure 7"

"Leafy and defoliated twigs and detached leaves; leaves mostly lanceolate, aciculate, sessile."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 61)

"These remains occur massed in layers, mostly in the form of broken twigs and detached leaves. Essential characters necessary for satisfactory generic identification are lacking; but a general resemblance to Glyptostrobus may be noted, especially to the short-leaved forms of Glyptostrobus ungeri Heer from the Tertiary of Colorado as figured by Lesquereux (1883) (pl. 22, fig. 2). In none of our remains, however, is there any indication of the scalelike leaves that are commonly present in connection with the twigs and branchlets of G. ungeri."
