M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Leaf impressions PA 1153.1–2, 1167.1–6, 1174.1–4, 1345, 1346, 1350, 1363.1 (leafy twig), 1373, 1376.1–2, 1395, 1408.

D e s c r i p t i o n. The leaves are alternately attached, short petiolate, lamina narrow lanceolate, with suprabasal acrodromous venation. Broader leaf forms (PA 1174.1, 1395) are the exception.

D i s c u s s i o n. This laurophyllous representative of Lauraceae   occurs quite commonly and in leaf morphology fits within this narrow-leaved lauroid fossil species, usually assigned to Cinnamomum SCHAEFF. It   is widely distributed in the Palaeogene localities in North Bohemia.
