Male ripe Ficus fulva with the ostiole bracts lower at left. Note the male anthers (twin white bars)  surrounding the ostiole and the empty ovaries with exit holes which acted as brood chambers for pollinating fig wasps.  The pregnant wasps have now left the fig  carrying pollen from the anthers either to fertilize a nearby unripe  female figs or to lay their eggs in the ovaries of  unripe male figs.
