1The upper ostiolar bracts are thick, not imbricate, and equal or unequal in size. The apices of some of the thick bracts just underneath the upper ones often rise in the space left open by the uppermost bracts. 3There are often small holes in the wall of the receptacle (caused by (breeding) parasites?). Similar holes are also found in F. chrysolepis. 4In dry material, the outer layer of the fig wall becoming easily detached from the inner one. 2The lamina, petiole, and stipules are usually glabrous, but sometimes hairy (in Borneo and Sumatra). 5The differences between F. annulata and F. chrysolepis are small. They could be merged and three (largely allopatric) subspecies established.
