Ficus spathulifolia at Batang Duri Park, Temburong, Brunei. The common name is Spoon Leaf Fig from the obovate shape leaves with the base smaller than the far “distal” end. This fig can only be confused with Ficus tristaniifolia which also has “spoon shaped” obovate leaves. Both these fig species are most common in poor soil, kerangas and peat swamp forest of which there is plenty in Brunei. All photos are by Arlene Walshe.
