"Plate 37, Figure 3"

"Leaf elliptical-ovate, 3.8 centimeters in length by 1.2 centimeters in maximum width, tapering to the apex, broadly cuneate or truncate at the base, coarsely and sharply crenate-serrate-dentate; nervation simply pinnate; lower secondary nerves leaving the midrib at obtuse angles of divergence, upper ones at acute angles, each nerve craspedodrome to one of the dentitions."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 69)

"This oak is similar to the type represented by the Tertiary species Quercus subrobur Goeppert (1852; 1855) (p. 491; p. 16, pl. 7, figs. 7 - 10) and the living Quercus tomentella Engelmann of the California coastal islands. It presents a different aspect to that of any Cretaceous species of Quercus heretofore described, and its occurrence in Alaska appears to be limited to the Chignik Bay region."
