Female fig fruit of Ficus tengerensis collected by Linus Gokusing close to Mushroom Shed 40 c. 1,000m asl, Kota Kinabalu – Tambunan Road in the Crocker Range, Sabah. 14 October 2014.

Note the absence of male anthers surrounding the ostiole which identifies this as a female fig. The bright pink/purple colour of the ripe female flowers inside the fig also appears to be distinctive for  F. tengerensis female figs.
