Ficus virens is found from India through SE Asia to N. Australia where it is known as the Curtain Fig. Tony Lamb and Robert Ong stand beneath to show the scale. All photos of Ficus virens in this article  are by Anthea Phillipps.

Ficus virens,  Kota Belud, Sabah. The leaves are typical of the five species of Borneo figs in SECTION UROSTIGMA with long petioles (leaf stalks) and a distinct triangular hinge at the junction of the petiole and the lamina (leaf blade). This is best seen on the underside of the leaf blade, so cannot be seen in this photo.
