ABOVE: Ants tending sap sucking bugs on a young shoot (hairy stipule) of Ficus megaleia on a roadside plant at Selapon in the Temburong district, Brunei. The young leaves of Ficus megaleia are often but not always bright orange red later changing to green as they mature. Red leaves usually seem to be larger than average so the colour may be related to the speed of growth i.e. fast developing leaves are initially red whilst slow developing leaves remain green.
