Fossil Friday!

Now that spring has arrived, I thought I'd share a leaf that might seem a little too familiar!  Well it should—it's from a genus that is found all over North America today. Its closest living species is still found in the Southeast. Can you tell me the modern species, as well as this ancient one that dates back to Miocene? Their names are almost the same!

First person to correctly identify the fossil wins bragging rights for the week!
