"Ficus daphnogenoides (Heer) Berry, Torrey Bot. Club Bull., vol. 32, p. 329, pl. 21, figs. 1-6, 9, 13, 14, 1905. (Berry, 1905)
Proteoides daphnogenoides Heer, in Capellini, J., and Heer, 0., Les phyllites cretacees du Nebraska: Soc. helv. sci. nat. Nouv. mem., vol. 2.2, No.1, p. 17, pl. 4, figs. 9, 10, 1866. (Heer 1866)"


From Hollick (1930) (p. 71)

"It is possible that two species are included in these specimens - the smaller ones representing Proteoides daphnogenoides as originally described by Heer, and the larger one representing Ficus proteoides Lesquereux (1892; 1898) but Berry has relegated all such leaf forms to a single species of Ficus, under the original specific name, and this rearrangement of the species is accepted, without discussion, on account of its convenience. On this conception of the species its geographic distribution would include the Upper Cretaceous of the Atlantic Coastal Plain region from southern New England to North Carolina, Alabama, Texas, and Alaska."
