  • Fossil fruits confirm that cornelian cherries (Cornus, subgenus Cornus) were established in the Northern Hemisphere in the Early Tertiary. We describe the oldest known member of the subgenus, Cornus piggae sp. n., on the basis of well‐preserved silicified endocarps from the late Paleocene of North Dakota. The endocarps are ellipsoidal, thin walled, and two to three locular, and they lack an axial longitudinal bundle. The septa and external walls of the fruit stone are riddled with cavities, a… CONTINUE READING
