I know it as Firmiana simplex in the Sterculiaceae.  The Riker Mount was
made by me when I taught there in 1970!!

Taxacomers,

 

An ulabeled Riker mount of an unusual leaf/leaflet was found among some
old teaching lab materials in our Biology Department.  It looks like a
single leaf with reproductive structures on the margins.  The venation
is also unusual.  Does anyone recognize the plant at:

The leaf or leaflet is 6-7 cm long.

 

Thanks,

Monique Reed
