"Plate 74, Figure 1"

"Leaf inequilateral, apparently obovate, irregularly lobate; lobes short, triangular, apiculate; margin denticulate; nervation pinnate, craspedodrome; midrib curved, convex toward the broad side of the leaf; secondary nerves irregularly spaced, subtending acute angles with the midrib and curving upward; tertiary nervation conspicuous, profuse, the nerves curving upward and terminating in the denticulations of the margin and traversing the lamina of the leaf irregularly between the secondaries, where they merge into finer quaternary cross nervation."



From Hollick (1930) (p. 97)

"This imperfect leaf is difficult to identify generically with any degree of satisfaction, and it is referred to the genus Sorbus with some hesitation, especially as that genus has apparently not been heretofore recorded from any horizon below the Tertiary."
