Ficus annulata is very variable  and  the figs may have  a distinctive thick peduncle (fruit stalk)  or no peduncle. Different plants may have persistent stipules or  stipules which drop off. These different varieties may all grow in the same location as  they do at the Rainforest Discovery Centre,  at Sepilok in Sabah.

The orange arrow on the right points  the circular hollow at base of the fig where the fruit stalk (peduncle) is attached to  the fruit. The peduncle of Ficus depressa which is closely related to  Ficus annulata   is attached in the same way. This circular depression is the origin of the latin name of Ficus annulata,
