Prior to the publication of Berg (2005) Ficus racemosa was known as Ficus obpyramidata  in Sarawak and Ficus racemosa itself,  (which is very common in Sarawak)  was thought to be very rare. This led to much confusion in local fruit publications which are otherwise extremely useful.

F. obpyramidata grows wild only in the Malay Peninsula but  has been introduced  to and is grown in some home orchards in Sarawak.

F. racemosa is a common fig of river banks in Sarawak and throughout Borneo

All the illustrations in the article  below (which have been copied from Indigenous Fruits of Sarawak published in 2003)  are of Ficus racemosa NOT  Ficus obpyramidata. The whole book in 3 parts can be downloaded below.
