Morphology

1In Celebes, the fig receptacle is often small (0.6-0.8) cm diam. and the wall may be smooth (var. minor), whereas in the Malay Peninsula and Sumatra it is larger, 1.3-1.8 cm diam. and the basal bracts sometimes up to 10 mm long (var. malayana). 2Two collections (Meyer 39 and 3880) from W Sumatra (Mt Sago) at 1000-1100 m have figs which are longer than wide. 3A collection from the Philippines, Mindanao (University of San Carlos 756), has ellipsoid figs (resembling those of F. borneensis), except for the open ostiole.
