Cedrelospermum linaetum (Elm leaves fossils)

These plant fossils were found in the Florissant Formation of Teller County, Colorado, USA. They date to the Eocene Epoch of the Paleogene Period. The fossils are thought to be Cedrelospermum linaetum (Elm leaves). Note one with a hole showing something was feeding on it. Thanks to Kenny for the images.
