Ficus glandulifera photographed on Tampalagus Hill in SW Sabah.
Tampalagus Hill is an isolated 280 m hill about 10 km from the coast opposite Brunei Bay in SW Sabah.
There is a steep road up to the telecoms tower on the summit. As with many of the coastal hills in West Sabah the forest was cleared for swidden farming a long time ago and the soil is poor and degraded with a typical flora of Nepenthes, Accacia mangium and secondary forest figs such as F. Fulva and in this case Ficus glandulifera which is locally common.
