Fossil leaf from Hungary

Here is a fossil leaf from Hungary that I received from my friend Christian as part of a trade. It comes from the Miocene (Serravallian stage, Sarmatian substage) near the village of Erdőbénye in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Hungary.

I'm not sure what the genus is but it reminds me of an oak leaf (Quercus sp.) although this discussion on the Fossil Forum indicates that it could be Zelkova zelkovifolia as well.
