Based on herbarium collections Ficus uniglanduosa used to be considered one of Borneo’s most common figs. However the fact that F. uniglandulosa is a straggling epiphytic fig which prefers tall trees along rivers means that it is now relatively uncommon in secondary forest and cultivated areas.

F. uniglandulosa is in Section Sycidium in which all trees are either male or female (dioecious). The fact that these figs are white, are rotting on the tree uneaten and have open ostioles indicates that this is a male tree where the fig wasps have already left. With a female tree the figs would be ripening orange to red, they would be scarce having been eaten by birds and the ostiole would be closed
