Fruiting Ficus sundaica growing next to the pond at the edge of the golf course near the main gate to the Dalit Golf Course and Rasa Ria Resort, Tuaran beach, Sabah. This example is the large leaved Form B, which is the most widespread form of Ficus sundaica. The leaves of this example are particularly large.

IDENTIFICATION NOTES (1) The fig fruits of Form B are smaller than Form A.  (2) The leaves of Form B are larger than Form A. (3) The basal veins of both species  start in  a “Y”. This is similar to the basal veins of both F. crassiramea and F. stupenda but the base of the “Y” is not as pronounced in F. sundaica. 


 The stipule is velvety (minutely hairy)  which is similar to Ficus subgelderii and Ficus pellucidopunctata. However Ficus subgelderi has less but better defined side veins on the leaf, whilst the side veins both above and below on Ficus pellucidopunctata are barely visible.
