Favorite Living Fossil

Favorite liviving fossil?  My unabashed bias shows through in nominating
Ginkgo biloba.  The jewel of a tree grows extraordinarily well in urban and
air-polluted areas, has fruit that is edible by animals and humans (you can
buy it in chinese markets fresh and canned), has a beautiful branching
habit, AND has motile sperm!!
