M a t e r i a l s t u d i e d. Leaf impressions PA 1163.1, 3, 5, 1181.1–2, 1377, 1397.1, 1441, 1442, 1577, involucre PA 1583.

D e s c r i p t i o n. Leaf impressions similar to the above morphotypes but differing in prominently mucronately serrate margin. A single fruit remain of the same fossil species representing an ovate, compressed parallel-veined involucre was recovered in association.

D i s c u s s i o n. Foliage of this fossil species can easily be mistaken for that of Carpinus   with only bluntly finely serrate margin ( Kvaček and Walther 1998, 2004). A single involucre of the same fossil species of Ostrya   was recovered at Matrý and matches other fossils of this sort occurring at Kundratice and Bechlejovice ( Kvaček and Walther 1998, 2004).
