Shown: Diatoms found in Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, including Aulacoseira, Frustulia, Achnanthidium, Synedra and Fragilaria.
Geologic period: Eocene
Ancient Lake Florissant was formed when two or more stratovolcanoes sent ash and lahar flowing across the mountain valley that is now home to the Florissant Fossil Bed National Monument.
The lake, lahar flows and ash falls created an outstanding environment for preserving evidence of the animals, insects and plants found in this valley. The National Monument provides an unparalleled look into this vanished landscape and the Eocene plant and animal inhabitants that were preserved.
