ABOVE: The large fig on the left attached to a root climbing liana is an immature female Ficus punctata fig fruit.
The leaves next to the fig covering the trunk in a dense mat belong to a male Ficus punctatafig plant. Ficus puncata is one of the most common figs in Borneo. If you spend any time in the forest you will frequently see Ficus punctata leaves covering the trunk and branches of large trees.
