ABOVE: The type collection of Ficus gigantifolia from Burias Island in the central Philippines held in the Smithsonian Museum in the USA. In personal correspondence with the late C. C. Berg in 2012, Berg claimed that he had found an example in Leiden herbarium of what he considered to be Ficus gigantifolia collected in Kalimantan. This is the only evidence we have that this fig might occur in Borneo.
Ficus gigantifolia is currently considered endemic to the Philippines where it has been recorded from Luzon, Bohol, Samar and Mindanao. For photos taken in the Philippines see the link below to the PhytoImages website.
