What is this weed? It is in a St Augustine yard in 9b. Florida I guess.

I want to see more pics, because this plant looks very familiar....

BTW, St Augustine is just down the road from me; I do a bike ride down there once in a while, it's about a 60-mile round trip, so I'm sure I got this plant in my yard.

I did not see the deep striations in the leaf. I am sure there is a technical name for the dent along the viens. Those pics looked hairy and smoother. Hairy is a unique feature and I swear I ran across some pics but lost them in the matrix

Green Shrimp plant, from the best I can tell is different than the plain ol' Shrimp Plant (Justicia brandegeana)??

I do have a Shrimp plant (Justicia brandegeana), as depicted here: https://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/plants/1720/shrimp-plant/

However, best I can tell is that the Green Shrimp plant is: Blechum brownei (or one of it's subspecies, such as Blechum pyramidatum). So I guess the only way to tell is to let it grow...I still think it looks very familiar.
