Sungei Lansat is a small river or large stream that enters the Tutoh River ( a tributary of the Baram River) just outside Mulu National Park in N.Sarawak. Three rare figs Ficus bruneiensis, F. diamantiphylla  and Ficus aureocordata have been collected on the banks of this river.  However  Ficus bruneiensis and F. diamantiphylla  are likely to be con-specific (same species).
