The Middle Eocene plant taphocoenosis from Eckfeld (Eifel, Germany).
However, without comprehensive statistical analyses of the taphocoenosis, the predatory origin of these borings cannot be excluded, as it has been suggested for some borings in Richmondian Onniella meeki (see Kaplan & Baumiller 2000).
The comparison of these levels can provide further information about taphocoenosis, dissemination, degradation, persistence of foliage, distribution of species, and the success of fossilization according to leaf buoyancy.
