Unfortunately, none that I know of.  There are well over a hundred
distinct morphotypes of megaflora in the H.C., most of which are
stashed away in the Yale Museum collections.

Kirk Johson and the Denver Museum staff were going to /already have
created a Lancian diorama, involving flora from the Hell Creek and
Lance Formations, so you may want to contact them for any sources
for images of these plants.
