    • At 1400 hours on 10/13/2018, I collected a number of specimens from the Tullock Member of the Fort Union Formation. The location is about a mile north of Miles City. The rock is fine silty clay with leaves and twigs mixed into the sediment. Above the strata is a layer of cattails forming a matted layer. Source for leaf identification came from Reproductive and Vegetative Organs of Browniea gen. n. (Nyssaceae) from the
      Paleocene of North America
      Article in International Journal of Plant Sciences, February 2007.
