M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Leaves PA 1187, 1357, 1399, 1400, 1401.1, 1440.1 and fruitlets PA 1359.1, 1359.2, 1426.1, 1442.

D e s c r i p t i o n. The leaves are short petiolate, lamina shallowly bilobate, 40–60 mm long, 30–60 mm wide, lobes at wide angles, entire-margined, acuminate, base widely rounded. Associated fruitlets represent isolated winged samaras, with elongate wing and basally positioned, 2 mm long spindle-shaped seed part.

D i s c u s s i o n. The recovered foliage is a complete record of Liriodendron haueri from North Bohemia. This fossil species is based on a single fragmentary leaf of the same kind recovered at Žichov (Ettinghausen 1869, Hably et al. 2001). Associated fruitlets correspond to those described in detail from the Oligocene site Markvartice ( Bůžek et al. 1976).
